In SDNY Murky Mag Court Sidebar on Man With 500 Grams Whom US Wants to Talk With

By Matthew Russell Lee

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 23 – While many or even most cases in the Magistrates Court of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York are sealed or have case numbers given only later, on October 23 before Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman a defendant was ordered remanded even as the docket number Inner City Press was when it requested given for him showed up as "cannot find case" in PACER two hours later. When Inner City Press walked into the Mag court, from a closing argument it was not allowed to report in real time, the response from the bench was "Counsel, approach for a minute."

While not knowing what was said - no basis for the sealing was publicly given - reference was made to the government wanting to talk with the defendant. So is he a cooperator? A potential cooperator?

In an abundance of caution, Inner City Press is not for now publishing his name. Just outside his house he had $130,000 in cash and 400 to 500 grams of narcotics. Yeah, sounds like an SDNY cooperator...

Last week as it covered in real time an 11 year sentence for a Brooklyn defendant, Jamel Jones, Inner City Press was subject to an "incident report." Here. While loving the beat, and respecting the law, inquires have been made, and now followed up.
