Jason Disla Described As Shooting Two Hired To Kill Him Is Detained by SDNY Judge Wang

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 9 -- A defendant named Jason Disla was presented before and detained by Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang on the evening of March 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court.

    The prosecutors told Judge Wang they have a video of Disla, "with corn rows and glasses," shooting a gun at two people, and emphasized that the gun is still missing.

   But Disla's Federal Defender called the two hitmen hired by a drug dealer, and said that the missing gun might not be his client's. 

   Judge Wang took a twenty minute break, during which Baum audibly told Disla's four family members in the gallery where Inner City Press was the only media that if when he gets the video it shows the prosecutors lied, Disla will be released. And that if the video is as the government says, he's going to jail anyway.  

Judge Wang returned and ruled that the government had met its burden of showing by clear and convincing evidence that releasing Dislaw would present a danger to the community.

    She added that if it is true that the two were hired assassins, released Disla would be a danger to him, too. A preliminary hearing was set for 14 days. The case, as announced, is US v Disla, 20-mj-2292 (Wang).
