In SDNY Disla Presented After 50 Grams of Crack and Scales McCombs Apartment To Be Visited

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC The Times (UK) Honduras - The Source 

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 22 – Fernando Disla was found in the lone bedroom of Apartment 2 of 1278 Grant Avenue in The Bronx on November 21 with 50 grams of crack, ziplock bags, digital scales and $900 in cash.  

  On November 22 he was presented and detained in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court past 7 pm on November 22 with Inner City Press the only media in the courtroom. This too is an exclusive report.

   According to Assistant US Attorney Thomas John Wright, Desla has three felony convictions and stands to be sentenced in his case as a Career Offender, with a guideline sentence of 262 to 327 months.

   Federal Defender Jonathan Marvinny replied that he had spent the three hours since he met Disla speaking to the mother of his 12 year old daughter, who offered to put him up although they are no long together romantically.

   Judge Sarah Netburn ordered Disla detained but directed Pre Trial Services to go visit his ex-partner's apartment on "McCombs Avenue" (McCombs Dam Road?) in the Bronx to see if it was be suitable to bail Disla to.

   Disla is a driver for Fresh Direct, his lawyer said, and believes the company will keep him on as he fights or deals with the charges. Given the criminal history and the potential guidelines sentence it is not clear how these charges could disappear. But Inner City Press will stay on the case.

While not available when the court was locked up at 7:30 pm, the case is US v. Disla, 19-my-11033 (Netburn).

As the court was locked, Judge Netburn said that someone had just been (Federally) arrested an hour before, It was not made clear if that presentment will be later on November 22, or on Saturday November 23. This lack of notice is a lack of transparency, on which Inner City Press aims to have more.
