In SDNY Saturday Action Ocasio-Granell Gets 40 Kilos of Coke Complaint Dismissed and Disappeared

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 9 -- Eric Ocasio-Granell accused of narcotics conspiracy for 40 kilograms of cocaine faced a rare Saturday presentment in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court on March 7.

     Inner City Press on Friday, March 6 had been told by sources that a presentment might take place on Saturday, requested for 9 am by Assistant US Attorney Karin Portlock. But there was and is no way to confirm such presentments. 

  When it happened at noon on Saturday, with Daniel Nessim as the AUSA, Ocasio-Granell's assigned counsel Sabrina Shroff told Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox to dismiss the complaint with regard to her client.

   Co-defendant David Leanos Perez, represented by Federal Defenders, consented to detention, at least until March 9. By which time, Ocasio-Granell's name and dismissal has been removed from the docket in US v. Perez, 20-mg-2647 (Fox).
