Arrested In NYC With 7 Guns From Tennessee Man From El Salvador Is Detained in SDNY

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

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, March 18-  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on March 18, a detention or release proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger on man from El Salvador arrested on March 17 with seven firearms brought up from Tennessee for sale in New York.

  Inner City Press covers the SDNY Magistrates Court, sometimes alone in the gallery, as it was on March 18. Defendant Samuel Martinez was assigned the duty Federal Defender, who put up an energetic argument for release on bond.

But it fail. Judge Lehrburger noted that it was not one gun but seven, and that Mr. Martinez is not a citizen and has an incentive to flee. The Federal Defender said he had little incentive to flee to El Salvador, and noted wryly that the masterminds are rarely those driving through the night to Tennessee to pick up the guns.

  The preliminary hearing was tentatively set for April 2. 

     The case is US v. Martinez, 22-mj-2639 (Lehrburger)
