Man With Four Names Charged With ID Theft Wants To Raise Disparate Jury Pool in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 9 – Franklin Tomala, also with three other names, is charged with false statements in application for passport and aggravated identity theft.  

      On June 9, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alison J. Nathan held an in-person proceeding. Inner City Press went to 40 Foley Square and covered it. 

 Judge Nathan said she was relieved to be back in the courtroom.

There was no one else in the gallery. Tomala's Federal Defender said she is requesting the grand jury information, and may file a motion about its racial make-up. 

Judge Nathan asked, Because it was in White Plains? (As in the US v. Balde case before Judge Failla, and the US v. Schulte case before Judge Crotty, among others).  

No, the Federal Defender said - not White Plains, but still disparate.

The case is US v. Tomala, 21-cr-367 (Nathan)
