SDNY Loosens Bail For Russian Defendant With Sealed Case and Unadmitted Lawyer

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 8 –    A Russian defendant who has been allowed out on bail by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York was given loosened bail conditions on January 8 in the SDNY Magistrates Court even while his case, before SDNY District Judge Lorna G. Schofield, remains sealed. More on Patreon here.

   Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman began the brief proceeding by summoning the Assistant US Attorney and the unnamed defendant's lawyer, whose pro hac vice application has not been approved, up for a whispered sidebar discussion.  

  Then a Russian language translator went forward to the defense table. The defendant asked if he had to stand up.

His bail conditions were loosened to no longer have the FBI as a third party custodian, and to give him more time to come up with the security -- $500,000 in cash -- for his bail.    He can have a cell phone to call his wife, and doctors -- this was added by Judge Freeman.

His address was given out in open court, even while the case remains sealed. Inner City Press is for now voluntarily not publishing the address in this format. More on Patreon here. The case should be unsealed, forthwith. Watch this site.
