US Cited Video Of Shooting After Rap Show But Admitted Not Seeing It So Defendant Freed

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 16 --  A defendant accused of shooting a victim twice in the street on January 25after a rap performance was ordered free on bond on March 16 by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron.   

The Assistant US Attorney argued that a video showed defendant Putnam shooting the victim twice then getting into a vehicle he was later arrested in.

   But Judge Aaron asked, Have you seen the video? The answer was No - but will you detain the defendant one or two days until we can show you the video?  

After a break, Judge Aaron ordered Putnam, whose wife was in the gallery where Inner City Press was the only media, freed on $25,000 bond. For now his travel is limited to the SDNY and EDNY. But since he is a truck driver, Judge Aaron said, he can ask for a loosening of conditions from Pre Trial Services. The case is US v. Putnam, 20-mj-2092 (Aaron).
