As Feagins Arraigned For Child Porn Judge Gorenstein Reminisces on Brooklyn Handball

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 7 – On charges of child pornography and not registering as a sex offender, Darnell Feagins was arraigned and pleaded not guilty on October 7 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein. Inner City Press covered it.  

 There was a preliminary issue. Judge Gorenstein asked Feagin, Do you recognize me? That we played handball together years ago on 4th Avenue in Brooklyn?  

 Judge Gorenstein said once he realized the possible conflict of interest, he reached out to defense counsel and asked if it was OK to go forward rather than try to find another Magistrate.

Since Feagins was consenting to detention, leaving no discretion for a judge, it was deemed acceptable. 

  Feagins pleaded not guilty. His Violations of Supervised Release are assigned to Second Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard J. Sullivan; the new failure to register indictment is assigned to SDNY District Judge William H. Pauley III. Speedy Trial Act time was excluded through November 6.

The case are US v. Feagins, 17-cr-377 (Sullivan) / 20-cr-218 (Pauley).
