In SDNY Two Defendants Described In Same SUV Each Has Separate Case And Each Detained

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 21 – On January 20, Martin Luther King Day, at 5:30 pm two defendants were arrested and then were presented one after the other on January 21 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court.

Each has a separate case, the complaint in which refers to the other as "CC-1" or CC-2." 

  Presented first was Arsenio Genao Francisco, wearing a shirt with sparkles spelling out Versace. His complaint, 20-mj-730, at Paragraph 8(j) said that "in the White SUV, CS-1 observed CC-2 in the front passenger seat and another person, later identified as ARSENIO GENAO FRANCISCO, in the driver's seat."

   After Fransisco was detained on consent, charged with conspiracy to distribute 400 grams or more of fentanyl, Miguel Angel de la Cruz Rodriguez was presented. His complaint, 20-mj-739, at Paragraph 10(k) said "in the White SUV, CS-1 observed RODRIGUEZ in the front passenger seat and another person ('CC-2') in the driver's seat."     Clearly, CC-2 is Fransisco and CC-1 is Rodriguez, each with a separate case number.

Rodriguez sought bail; he was described as not a citizen and his Federal Defender requested and got a non-public sidebar discussion, held in the Magistrate Court's robing room without a court reporter. 

  At the conclusion of this discussion, Rodriguez was denied bail and was remanded. Inner City Press will continue to follow the case(s). They are US v. Rodriguez, 20-mj-729 (Gorenstein) and US v. Fransisco, 20-mj-730 (Gorenstein).
