BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12 – Franklin Mejia Martinez is charged in a drug conspiracy.   

       On October 12 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The AUSA said they had intercepted phone calls from the defendant to a co-conspirator, who then traveled from Queens through The Bronx in the SDNY to New Jersey to deliver the drugs.

 The defense conceded venue. The plea agreement is for 135 to 168 months, and the sentencing is now set for January 26, at 10 am.

The case is US v. Mejia Martinez, 21-cr-408 (Broderick)
