Daurell Chavis Arrested For Oxycodone Sales Is Bailed in SDNY But Timmie Sampson Detained

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 11 – Daurell Chavis was charged with distributing oxycodone and fentanyl in a complaint before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger on February 10.  

 The complaint describes for example the sale of 23 oxycodone pills for $440 on Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan.

On February 11, after the arrest of Chavis and his alleged co-conspirator Timmie Sampson, the Federal Defenders argued for Chavis' release on bond. Assistant US Attorney Ni Qian opposed release. 

  Chavis, it emerged, needs dialysis. After a break, Judge Lehrburger ordered him released that day, with another signer due in a week's time, and the Pre-Trial Services' home visit put off for the next day.   

Meanwhile Chavis' co-defendent Timmie Sampson, assigned a CJA lawyer, was detained on consent. Was it the dialysis? The case is US v. Chavis, 20-mj-1519 (Lehrburger).
