Gardner After Selling Crack Fled Police & Rear Ended Car Now Pleads Guilty, Transcript Sealed

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 – In 2017, Brandon Gardner was convicted of selling numerous twists of crack in housing projects.

 On September 8, 2020 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses held a Violation of Supervised Release proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 While often VOSR charges are not put in the public docket, in this case a summons was included, alleging that on March 14, 2020 in The Bronx Gardner "committed a state crime, fleeing from officer in motor vehicle... high speed chase... leaving the scene of a person injury accident in violation of Vehicle Traffic Law 600.2A in that the Supervisee "rear-ended an occupied vehicle, caused injury to the driver, and continued to flee." The summons is full of typos. 

  Gardner's lawyer David Stern consented to his client's detention pending a future proceeding before the assigned District Judge, Denise L. Cote. 

  On June 11, 2021, Judge Cote held a proceeding on the CourtCall platform with Brandon Gardner. He was pleading guilty to most of the 14 specifications -- but both sides asked that the transcript be sealed.

The proceeding, however, was open. Inner City Press is voluntarily limiting its reporting; tellingly, the only next step on this docket will be a status letter by December 17. We will stay on the cases, because the courts, and deals the government makes, must be public.

The case is US v. Gardner, 18-cr-317 (Cote / Moses).
