BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 15 – Rashawn Assanah is charged with smuggling contraband into an NYC Department of Corrections jail on Rikers Island while a corrections officer there.     

      On June 15, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Colleen McMahon held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

  Judge McMahon asked for more detailed. Smuggled in, it seems, were a cell phone and a wrench. Assanah was paid by the wife of Inmate-1, the complaint says. 

 Judge McMahon told the US Attorney's Office to complete producing discovery by June 30. She set the next conference for September 21.

The case is US v. Assanah, 21-cr-351 (McMahon)
