Jonell Danforth Wanted Out of MDC Prison But US Cites Video Of Slashing and He Remains Detained

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 12 – Jonell Danforth a/k/a Sealed Defendant 9 on May 12 was seeking release amid the COVID-19 pandemic from the MDC prison, regarding which a separate class action hearing was held in Brooklyn. 

 As luck would have it, Danforth's case is before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Analisa Torres, who previously dug into conditions at the MDC, as Inner City Press covered at the time. 

In this case, Assistant US Attorney Justin Rodriguez cited video that can be used at trial of a slashing. He said, The defendant is 20 years old, he's not on BOP's list of high risk inmates.

    Judge Torres ruled that the Government has met its burden of showing defendant is a risk to the community and should be detained. She turned to the 6th Amendment right to counsel but found that a protocol has been developed for one legal call per week of 30 minutes.

The case is US v. Danforth, 20-cr-78 (Torres).
