For 460 Kilos of Cocaine in Lawn Drums One Defendant Detained But 2d Released in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTROOM Exclusive, Oct 1 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on September 30, two detention proceedings were held back to back by Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein on Carlos Maisonet-Lopez (released) and Nelson Agramonte-Minaya (detained), both for 460 kilos of cocaine.

 The difference? The former is a US resident, while the latter is not and is linked to the facility with the tools to open the lawn drums with the cocaine. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag court. The lead or first named defendant got the Federal Defenders; the other two, CJA counsel.

  The case on the evening of September 30 was not yet available in PACER. But it appeared on October 1, and the Complaint not only describes "what appears to be an abandoned lot" but also has a photograph of it.

The overall case is US v. Aponte-Guzman, 21-mj-9445 (Gorenstein).
