Bronxite Smith in SDNY Mag Court Has Unemployment and Child Support Disclosed

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 – Jonathan Smith was charged with a shooting in front of 2364 Washington Avenue in The Bronx.

He appeared on September 8 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses. Inner City Press covered it.  

  While elsewhere in the SDNY the argument is made that financial information of defendant Michael Avenatti, to get like Smith a publicly funded lawyer, is confidential, Smith information was read into the record by Judge Moses.  

 Smith is receiving $471 a week in unemployment. He has children aged 1, 3 and 8, and pays child support of $150 to $200 a month for each. He pays $300 a month in rent, and $65 a month for his cell phone's Internet service.

So why is Avenatti's information all under seal? Inner City Press has opposed this. 

 This case is US v. Smith, 20-cr-317 (Swain / Moses).
