Man Indicted For 1000 Pounds of Pot in 2013 Is Held In Jail In 2019 Names of Children Unredacted

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 14 –  In 2013 under US Attorney Preet Bharara, Bentley Gerard Hatchett was indicted for conspiracy to distribute more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana.  

On November 14, 2019 Hatchett was denied bail by Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker of the  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    Judge Parker noted how long Hatchett had evaded capture, the long distance to his home in Austin, Texas and inconsistencies in statements about how much his family, member of which were in the gallery with Inner City Press, knew and when they knew it.

   Afterward Hatchett's retained counsel Randolph E. Daar of San Francisco, admitted pro hac vice, congratulated Assistant US Attorney Brett Kalikow for his arguments, then strategized with Hatchett's family members in the hall outside the Mag court.

   Daar's application for bail had stated, "it should be noted actions taken by the federal government in response to the growing number of states enacting law legalizing medical and recreational cannabis demonstrate a recognition that the offence is not as harmful as the law would suggest."

    He also noted that Hatchett's mother Betty Chomel had a 40 year career in the high tech industry, from Texas Instruments to Hewlett-Packard. His father was a politico-military affairs officer. Daar's filing, Inner City Press notes, does not redact the names of minor children. The case is USA v. Hatchett, 13-cr-634 (Swain / Parker).
