Felon in Possession Was Left Near a Radiator Now Out on $25000 Bond Fixing Elevators

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 8 –    A defendant appeared with halting voice and head trembling on a charge of Felon in Possession of a firearm before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses on October 8. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here:

Seems it's a case of Felon in Possession of a firearm, to whit, a .22 caliber North American Arms Firearm, Serial Number E226870

AUSA: "Defendant was arrested this morning, at 6 am, in The Bronx."

SDNY Magistrate Judge Moses: You have the right to remain silent... If you are a foreign national you have the right to have your consulate notified

Defendant Jose Serrano is paying for his lawyer, unlike Michael Avenatti & David Correia, both of whose applications Inner City Press has filed to unseal.

AUSA: As soon as docketed on PACER [it already is] assigned Judge [Schofield] will reach out to counsel

Judge Moses: Is there a proposal?

AUSA: The defendant discharged the firearm. But because the defendant has been indicted in the state as well, we will set conditions of bail: $25,000 bond, travel restricted to SDNY, surrender of passport, drug testing

Judge Moses: I notice, Mr. Serrano, that you have a tremor, in your head. Is this anxiety?

Defense lawyer: It's a long story. He was left near a radiator when he was a child... I represent him in state case, it's been going on for a year. He's an elevator maintenance worker

Defense lawyer: We want EDNY travel as well. He works on elevators in Brooklyn and Queens. He goes to church three times a week.

Judge Moses: I agree to bail. A week for co-signers on the $25,000 bond. Do you understand?

Serrano: Y-y-y-ess Y-y-your Honor [shaky]

Judge Moses. We will be adjourned.

The case is US v. Serrano, 20-cr-522 (Schofield / Moses)
