Danny Bang Pleads Guilty To 10 Kilos of Meth As Cuong Bang Wants Written Proffer at SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 5 – Danny Bang and Cuong Bang were charged with narcotics conspiracy involving 10 kilograms of methamphetamine.

On June 8 Danny Bang's lawyer appeared before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman; Inner City Press covered it. 

  It emerged that Danny Bang has scheduled a change of plea - that is, a guilty plea - proceeding for September 25.

That took place on October 5, and Inner City Press covered it. An hour later, Cuong Bang called in from California. He is will to submit a Safety Valve proffer, but only in writing.

His lawyer Sabrina Shroff explained that a client should have his lawyer by their side for such a proffer, not far away on Zoom. She cited another case, US v. Rico, 18-cr-661, where the US Attorney's Office accepted a written proffer.

AUSA Elizabeth Hanft, who appeared in both Bang proceedings, said her Office is unlikely to accept a written proffer, saying seemingly dismissively that Ms. Shroff can send in whatever she wants.

   In this case, Judge Liman said, I am the judge, you will not speak over each other. There appears to be an April 19, 2021 trial date. 

The case is now US v. Bang et al., 19-cr-213 (Liman).
