Defendant With 101 Baggies of Crack and Lacerated Victim Bailed In SDNY Mag Court

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 18 -- Shawn O'Faire was in December 2019 in the Edenwald housing projects in the north Bronx, with 101 baggies of crack and a co-defendant with a gun and a Victim-1 with bruises and lacerations on her face. 

 On March 10 O'Faire was freed on bail by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang. The conditions were a $100,000 bond co-signed by two financially responsible people.  

These conditions were agreed to, and apparently proposed by, Assistant US Attorney Christopher J. Clore.

Perhaps there's more to the story, in terms of the relative culpability of co-defendant Brian Smith for whom Federal Defender Julia Gatto consented to detention on February 26. 

But this was not explained at the March 10 presentment of O'Faire, at which Inner City Press was the only media, beyond a statement that the gun was all Smith, O'Faire only charged with the 101 baggies crack. The case is US v. O'Faire, 20-mj-1920 (Wang).
