Gonzalez Avoids Jail Gets Home Incarceration In Texas After Arrest With 8 Kilos and Gun on Phone

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 18 -- Dagberto Gonzalez was arrested on Friday, March 20 at 12:45 pm. Due to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York's new noon cut-off for new presentments triggered by the Coronavirus crisis, he waited until Monday, March 23 to be presented.

    When he was, Assistant US Attorney Kedar Bhatia told SDNY Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave that Gonzalez was arrested with eight kilograms of fentanyl and $10,000 case, and three children under 10 years told in his vehicle.

     Gonzalez' Federal Defender noted that a field test pegged the substance as cocaine. When AUSA Bhatia said that found on Gonzalez's phone was a photo of him with a gun, she asked to see it. The photo was not available in court, only back at the US Attorney's Office.  

  Judge Cave took a recess to the robing room of large courtroom 24B with Pre Trial Services. When she emerged, she ordered Gonzalez to be tried to home incarceration at his house in Texas after all conditions were fulfilled: $100,000 bond secured by his home and two co-signers, and turning in the passport card cited in the non-public pre trial services report. The case is US v. Gonzalez, 20-mj-3131 (Cave).
