As 21 Year Old Luis Torres Is Detained For Drugs and Guns Tears In SDNY Mag Court

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – It was just a line of data, but it resulted in tears and jail confinement. Luis Torres, Narcotics, 20-mj-753.

In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court, Torres was brought out with three U.S. Marshals sitting behind him. His Criminal Justice Act lawyer characterized his client as a "dime bag crack dealer" but there were also guns involved.   

Midway through the bail hearing, Torres began to cry. First with this head tucked inside his t-shirt, then more openly. Magistrate Judge James L. Cott urged him to listen to what the prosecutor was saying. He did, but then started shaking his head.

   Judge Cott ultimately found that the government met its burden and Torres was to be detained. The crying grew louder. He is only 21. The case is US v. Torres, 20-mj-753 (Cott) - and even three hours after the remand order, the case is listed as sealed.
