SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 12 -- Herberto Emiro Acevedo Molina is a Venezuelan citizen arrested and presented on March 12 on bank fraud charges and detained by U.S. District Court for the Southern Distict of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang.

 His Federal Defender argued that due to Coronavirus, he should not be sent to the Metropolitan Correctional Center. But this argument was not accepted.

  Next, his Federal Defender that he like others would not want to return to Venezuela, seeming to use the term barbaric regime. (He declined to confirm when asked by Inner City Press after the proceeding).   The Federal Defender said Herberto Emiro Acevedo Molina is living in Brooklyn with his girlfriend who would will willing to sign his bond.  

 What does she work in, Judge Wang asked. Medical supply, the Defender replied, adding that it must be a rising industry now, a second but not the last reference to Coronavirus (he lives in New Rochelle).

  But the risk of flight was deemed too much by Judge Wang and Herberto Emiro Acevedo Molina was ordered detained without prejudice to making a future appliction for back. The case is US v. Acevedo Molina, 20-mj-2775 (Wang).
