Man Ending Supervision Went Off Meds So A Warrant Issued Now to March 31 For New Plan

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 17 – Kevin R. Scott was nearly the end of his supervised release.    

    On May 13, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York there was a proceeding on Scott. Inner City Press covered it.

Scott did not show up or call in. 

 Even the defense lawyer expressed concern. There was talk of Scott going off his meds; issues of competency and the need for an evaluation were discussed.

A warrant was to be e-mailed to chambers.

On June 10, the US Attorney's Office wrote that the U.S. Marshals have located Scott in a residential substance abuse treatment program, and that since the Court wants him to remain there, the arrest warrant should be withdrawn.

On June 15, it was: "ORDER as to Kevin R. Scott. The warrant issued on May 13, 2021 for Mr. Scott's arrest is hereby vacated."

Jump cut to January 26, 2022. Inner City Press was in the SDNY Magistrates Court when Scott was brought in on a violation of supervised release. Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang said she would release him on condition so he would with with his lawyers to prepare a bond package. Now "Bail Review Hearing set for 2/7/2022 at 10:30 AM before Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang."

And then, without phone call-in line, he was ordered released: " Minute Entry for proceedings held before Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang:Detention Hearing on disposition sheet as to Kevin R. Scott held on 2/7/2022. Defense counsel Stephen Turano. AUSA Alexander Li. Agreed conditions of release: Deft released on own recognizance, $500,000 PRB & 1 moral suasion, Travel restricted to SDNY/EDNY, Home detention, GPS, Deft not to possess firearm/destructive device/other weapon, Deft to be released on own signature; All conditions from previous judgment are still in effect (see attached - ECF 94, pgs. 4& 5), CJA counsel, Stephen Turano, is substituted for prior CJA counsel, Robert Gottlieb. Next conference set before District Judge on 2/24/22 at 2pm."

On March 17, Scott with his ankle bracelet beeping and Turano appeared in person before Judge Koeltlt. Inner City Press was in the courtroom - the only one in the gallery.

  Probation was recommending time served and an end to supervised release. Turano said his would just be abandoning his client, who needs help. Judge Koeltl agreed, and set a new date to come up with a proposal: March 31 at 2:30 pm.

The case is US v. Scott, 13-cr-962 (Koeltl / Wang)
