In SDNY Alleged Gang Member Ruffat Now Set to Plead Guilty Feb 5 US Says on MLK Day

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 18 – On Friday August 28, 2020 a defendant was processed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court, and was ordered detained at least until September 15. Inner City Press covered it.

   It was before 5 pm when a defendant named Ruffat appeared before SDNY Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman. CJA lawyer Grainne O'Neill - she spelled her name and said it was Irish - argued for release on bond. 

 But Assistant US Attorney Alexandra Rothman alleged gang membership, and said that the assigned District Judge, John G. Koeltl, had scheduled a proceeding on September 15.   

Ruffat was ordered detained as a danger to the community.

Now on January 18, MLK Day, AUSA Rothman has filed a letter with Judge Koeltl that "the Government understands that that defendant intends to withdraw his previous plea of not guilt and enter a plea of guilty... on February 5."

The case is US v. Ruffat, 20-cr-438 (Koeltl / Freeman).
