Man Facing March 28 Narcotics Is Offered Condolences But Detained by SDNY Magistrate

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

SDNY COURTROOM Exclusive, Jan 3 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on the early afternoon of January 3, a detention or release proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger on a defendant facing a March 28 trial in a multi-defendant narcotics conspiracy case.

  The defendant, Maurice Womack, had his assigned Criminal Justice Act defense lawyer, and a handwritten letter. Judge Lehrburger offered him condolences for the loss of his wife but said that, under 18 USC 3148(b)(1)(b) he felt compelled to order him remanded.

  Judge Lehburger asked AUSA Li if there is a pre-trial conference before the assigned District Judge, Alvin K. Hellerstein. Apparently there is not - none is in the docket - but AUSA Li said that Judge Hellerstein's courtroom deputy had asked to know the outcome of the detention hearing. The outcome was detention, followed by the entry of more grand jury documents to be signed.

This case is US v. Spearman, et al. (Hellerstein / Lehrburger).
