Man Released On $1 Bail On NYS Gun Charge Is Released In SDNY On Own Signature No Stay

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 4 --  On January 22, Dante Stephens was before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alison J. Nathan charged with possession of crack cocaine and marijuana while serving a three year period of Supervised Release imposed by Judge Nathan after conviction for selling the same substances. 

  Judge Nathan on January 22 imposed a 22 month period of Supervised Release. 

  In February Dante Stephens was captured on video with a backpack later found to have a loaded gun in it. On March 4 in the SDNY Magistrates Court, Assistant US Attorney Jessica Feinstein argued to Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox that Stephens should be detained.    

Stephens' appointed lawyers proposed that he remain detained until he had two financially responsible person co-sign his bond, and that he subject to home confinement. They emphasized that New York State had yet to bring an indictment on the February gun charge and had released Stephens on one dollar bail.    Judge Fox ruled that Stephens should be released later that day, with one financially responsible person to sign in a week's time.  

 AUSA Feinstein asked Judge Fox to stay his ruling so that the US Attorney could appeal to the SDNY Part I judge.   

 Fox did not grant a stay, and Inner City Press later heard that neither the week's Part I Judge nor Judge Nathan, who is conducting an Iran sanctions trial that Inner City Press is also covering, could hear the case that evening.    

Dante Stephens signed his own bond and left the courthouse. The case is US v. Stephens, 15-cr-95 (Nathan / Fox).
