Man Who Jumped White House Fence Has Case Returned to SDNY Judge Swain Not Sullivan

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 15 – Antoine Blount served 13 months in detention for armed robbery until he was released with five years of Supervised Release in 2013 by then-District Judge Richard J. Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  

On June 19, 2019 in Washington DC Blount jumped a bike rack to enter the White House grounds. He was arrested and charged with, among other things, violation of the terms of his Supervised Release, called "specifications."   

The transfer papers sending Blount's specifications to the SDNY said, "The Honorable Judge Sullivan is requesting that the District of Columbia case be assigned to him due to his pre-existing relationship with Mr. Blount's case and therapeutic needs."    

But in a order signed January 14 and filed January 15, now Circuit Judge Sullivan has transferred the case and Blount to SDNY District Judge Laura Taylor Swain, to whom the case was wheeled out ("duly assigned") when transferred from from federal court in Washington DC on January 9. And that's how, as Inner City Press daily reports from the SDNY Magistrates Court, the wheels of justice turn.

The SDNY case was US v. Blount, 12-cr-670 (Sullivan) and is now US v. Blount, 20-cr-20 (Swain).
