Felon in Possession Charge Results in Guilty Plea After Questions About White Plains Jury

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 22 – Valdez Simmons, previously convicted of domestic violence, is now accused of possessing a .380 caliber Kel-Tec model P-3AT pistol.

This was according to an indictment on which Simmons was arraigned on June 22 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel. Inner City Press covered it.  

What arose was that the indictment was not from the SDNY in lower Manhattan, but a grand jury convened in White Plains.

 Simmons lawyer inquired into this, as other defense counsel have. There was another proceeding, and now a guilty plea, both of which Inner City Press covered.

On February 22 Valdez Simmons pled guilty. Judge Castel asked him where it occurred (The Bronx, I think, was the answer). It seems the jury pool questions are slipping away.

This case is US v. Simmons, 20-cr-294 (Castel).
