Defendant Denied Bail Ousts CJA Lawyer Parsons Remote Calling In From Wyoming

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 15 –    In May 2020 Christopher Nelson's assigned counsel Inga L. Parsons with her office address in Marblehead, Massachusetts soughts his release on bail amid COVID-19 from U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni.

  Judge Caproni denied release, finding that "while Mr. Nelson does have asthma, the record suggests that the condition is not serios, and given that he is 28-years old, he is at a lower risk of complications relative to defendant that this Court has released due to COVID-19."  

 Nelson soon thereafter sought to replace Parsons with a new counsel. Parsons wrote in, "Counsel is presently out of town in Wyoming but available for a remove hearing at the Court's convenience." Judge Caproni held a proceeding on June 15. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Caproni informed Nelson that while he could make this change, he might not be able to make another one - would he like to think about it?

He replied that he had thought about it for a while, and wanted to make a change. He made a point of saying the Parsons is a nice person, just didn't seem to have enough time.  

 Judge Caproni reminded him that all CJA lawyers - all lawyers, in fact - have multiple clients. But substitution was ordered.

 The case is US v. Nelson, 19-cr-862 (Caproni).
