Man Pleads To 2012 Violation of Supervised Release, Time Served, Santo Domingo Cited

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 31 – Luis Octavio Medrano is charged with a violation of supervised release back in 2012.   

          On July 22, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.     Judge Berman called it an old case.

While Medrano went at one point to the Dominican Republic, it was unclear if he was subsequently arrested there or in Puerto Rico.

 In any event, he pleaded not guilty.

That was then. On August 28, Medrano appeared again before Judge Berman, and Inner City Press again covered it. Now he pled guilty to a single violation, having slightly more than 100 pills on 148th Street and Broadway ten years ago.

 Judge Berman called it not the most serious violation and sentenced Medrano to time served and no more supervised release.

The case is US v. Medrano, 08-cr-60 (Berman)
