Perkins Alleged Felon in Possession Is Chided For Harlem Detour Earliest SDNY Trial October

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 18 – Shaquille Perkins was accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Then on June 18 on an alleged violation of supervised release he came before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge William H. Pauley III.

Inner City Press covered it.  Perkins' Federal Defense said it's the stress of the prosecution. "We are all under stress these days. On the spectrum of violations, this is more damaging to him than the public. Counselor wrote a letter."  

Judge Pauley: Officer Rothman says on June 3 your client went to Lexington Avenue in Harlem where he spent two hours. What was he doing? 

Federal Defender: It's hard not to take a break and speak with Mr. Perkins then respond. He hasn't followed the rules to the T.  

AUSA: These are serious charges. The two hours detour is of concern. The government will not not ask for remand. We hope this is an aberration.  Judge

Pauley: Mr. Perkins, have you been listening? 

Perkins: Yes, very intently.

Judge Pauley: It is disturbing when a person on pre-trial release does not comply. You have got to fully comply, only travel to and from your therapy session without any excuses. Some of the excuses in the report sound very lame to me. I do not find them credible.

 Judge Pauley: GPS does not lie. It tells us where you were. You say you were not in a park. But GPS says you were. You have a road to climb with the court. You need steady adherence.. Prozak for stress.. We are all under stress. I do not want you to disappoint me.   

From the docket: "It is unlikely a venire can be summoned any sooner than trial date of October 5, 2020."

The case is US v. Perkins,19-cr-705 Pauley).
