Supervised Release Ends Early For Good Behavior As AUSA Muses on Separation of Powers

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 28 – Kelvin Martinez served a lengthy prison sentence in a drug gang case.      

   On March 28, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a termination of supervised release proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

 Judge Berman said he likes to do such things on consent, unanimously. Long-time Assistant US Attorney Michael D. Maimim when called on told a story, that his son asked him why criminals aren't just locked up forward. 

  After noting the separately of powers, Maimim said that Kelvin Martinez' case might initially seem to call into the question, why not lock up forward. But Kelvin Martinez has turned things around.

There was talk of his work at the Hunts Point market, and wanting to move to Florida when a child graduates.    Supervised release was terminated early.

The case is  US v. Martinez, 09-cr-765 (Berman)
