In SDNY Mysterious Mag Court Shakeil Chandler Detained For Gun While Case Sealed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 20 – A man who flagged down the police and then was charged with having a gun asked to remain free on bail on November 20. His request was denied; even hours later the case was labeled "sealed" on PACER.

 The defendants name is Shakeil Chandler. He works for CAMBA in Brooklyn, like one of his siblings. His mother works for Cornell University. But he has a previous conviction, and that was that in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, before Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn. Perhaps there's more in the file - but the case is labeled "sealed." How is that possible? The case is US v. Chandler, 19-mj-10126 (Netburn).

Back on November 18 Miguel Nivar was presented on a sealed charge of "felon in possession" of a firearm or ammunition before Judge Netburn.

  While the U.S. Attorney's Office had consented to release that very night on a $25,000 bond, Judge Netburn cited a policy of Pre-Trial Services that no one would be released until a home visit was conducted by the Service. (Minutes later a defendant named Lin, a Chinese national charged with money laundering, was released without any home visit).

  Perhaps it was because the government, while purportedly offering same-night release, also wanted GPS monitoring. But it remained murky: Lin had no docket number, and Nivar's case even hours later remained "under seal" on PACER. Inner City Press will have more on this.

 The case is US v. Nivar, 19-mj-10179 (Netburn).
