Defendant In MCC Quarantined Four Weeks With Same Clothes and White Plains Grand Jury

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 17 – Paul Thomson was indicted in 2019 as an alleged Felon in Possession of a firearm, and arrested in 2020.

On July 17 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

Beyond the formalities, two issues arose.

One involves the indictment, or more precisely the grand jury, which while "seated" in Manhattan apparently involved jurors actually sitting in White Plains, which the defense lawyer said might violation the US Constitution.

The other, more troubling, is that according to his defense lawyer Thomson has been held in the MCC in quarantine not for two weeks but four, allowed to leave his cell only every other day.

He has been in the same clothes for four weeks, his lawyer said.

 Judge Liman to his credit asked for an update by next Tuesday, July 21, as to the double-down quarantine.

 The case is US v. Thompson, 19-cr-56 (Liman)
