Man Arrested With 1 Kilo of Fentanyl 1 Week After Leaving Jail Is Remanded Unlike Elkorany

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 10 – Edward Maria was released after a three year jail sentence for drugs on September 2. On September 9 he was arrested in Manhattan with, the DEA says, one kilogram of fentanyl. 

On September 10 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Maria, so recently released from jail, had retained / paid counsel, who argued that he should be released on bond.    

Assistant US Attorney Kedar Bhatia argued with with the weight of the fentanyl and Maria's prior conviction, he would not be safety valve eligible and thus had an incentive to flee that ten year mandatory minimum. 

  Judge Moses agreed, finding that Maria and his lawyer had not overcome the presumption that he poses a danger to the community.

He was detained (unlike, for example, UN rapist Karim Elkorany (for whom the SDNY US Attorney agreed to a bail package) and Columbia "dirty doc" Robert Hadden.

This case is US v. Maria, 20-mj-9664 (Moses).
