Defendant Who Refused To Tell Pre Trial Services Where He Is From Detained for Heroin

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 17 -- Edinuel Rodriguez Polanco was the subject of an arrest warrant for narcotics distribution signed on March 16 by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron. 

On March 17 he was presented in shackles before Judge Aaron, with a half dozen family members in the gallery along with Inner City Press.    His lawyer argued that Rodriguez Polanco has no criminal record.

The Assistant US Attorney countered that he had been arrested in 2010 in the Dominican Republic, and he refused to tell Pre Trial Services where he in fact comes from.  

While his lawyer argued that refusal to speak to Pre Trial Services should not be held against a defendant, Judge Aaron ordered Rodriguez Polanco detained, saying that fentanyl and heroin are serious dangers while explicitly putting no weight on the murky 2010 Dominican arrest.

The case is US v. Rodriguez Polanco, 20-mj- 2960 (Aaron).
