Johnny Nunez Dropped A .38 On Townsend Ave In The Bronx Now Detained on Consent in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 26 – On June 30 at 2 am in front of 1475 Townsend Avenue in The Bronx, Johnny Nunez was approached by police and dropped something on the ground. He said it was a box cutter; the police and FBI Special Agent Michael Ercolano say it was a gun, specifically a .38 Special caliber Derringer pistol.

   On November 26 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger asked Nunez's assigned CJA lawyer Inga Parson is she would argue to get Nunez released on bond.

   No, she said, given the state issues they would consent to detention without prejudice to making a bond motion later.

    Assistant US Attorney Frank Balsamello, who earlier on November 26 argued for and got a 35 year sentence against Edwin Romero in another Bronx case, waited in the Magistrates Court to go back before Judge Lehrburger and push the preliminary hearing from December 10 to December 30. The case is US v. Nunez, 19-mj-6577 (Lehrburger).
