Bronxite Remains in NJ Jail For Bryant Ave Shooting While Hedge Funder Freed by SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 6 – Back on September 3 SDNY prosecutors announced that "DANIEL KAMENSKY, the founder and manager of New York-based hedge fund Marble Ridge Capital (“Marble Ridge”), was charged in a Complaint in Manhattan federal court with securities fraud, wire fraud, extortion, and obstruction of justice."

Then they agreed that Kamensky could be released the same day on $250,000 bond.   

That same day in the same Magistrates Court, a man named Jamel Porter was charged with shooting a gun in The Bronx, and with claustrophobia, was ordered detained.

 Inner City Press could not live tweet that one, being in a collective stake out of Kamensky- but noted that it would "write a story later despite the prosecutors not publicizing the case and the docket number not being given."

And now here it is: on October 6 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a bail hearing on Jamel Porter. Inner City Press again covered it.

Since September 3 Porter has been in Essex County Jail in New Jersey, at first in lockdown 23 hours a day. The US Attorney's Office sought continued detention, citing a shooting on 165th Street and Bryant Avenue in the Bronx. The Office said that "GX-1 is one of the surveillance videos showing the defendant committing the shooting."   

 Judge Berman ordered continued remand but asked Federal Defenders to submit a proposed order on medication. The next conference was set for December 10 and Speedy Trial Act time was excluded.

The case is US v. Porter, 20-cr-459 (Berman)
