Jesus Gomez Charged With Kilos of Heroin Got CJA Lawyer Then A Retained Counsel and Pled

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 3 -- When Jesus Gomez was first presented it was for 23 kilos of heroin, before  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker on March 28, 2019. He was assigned a Criminal Justice Act lawyer, Jeremy Schneider.  

But when SDNY District Judge Paul A. Crotty held a second arraignment on April 4, 2019, Schneider said he was being replaced by retained (paid) counsel from California.     He said that California lawyer had wanted him to stay on as a local counsel but that as CJA lawyer on the case he could not accept (outside) money:

"I actually spoke to the clerk as well as referred to the CJA rules which specifically prohibits [sic] me from accepting any money on a CJA case. So, that being said, I have informed counsel out in California that I cannot appear as local counsel, he will have to make whatever arrangements he need to have local counsel appear."  

On March 3, 2020 Inner City Press was back in SDNY Magistrate Court when Jesus Gomez pled guilty not to 23 kilos but 100 grams of heroin, the lesser included offense. The sentencing was set for June 3. The case is US v. Gomez, 18-cr-490 (Crotty / Fox).
