SDNY Judge Crotty Cited Manslaughter For Detention of Shakeil Chandler Now Trial Looms

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 30 – A man who flagged down the police and then was charged with having a gun, Shakeil Chandler, was denied bail on November 20 by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn.

  On December 16, 2019 Chandler and his Federal Defender reappeared before SDNY District Judge Paul A. Crotty, again seeking bail.

  Essentially the same arguments were advanced - that he worked for CAMBA in Brooklyn, like one of his siblings, that there was no reason to disbelieve that the gun belonged to someone else.

  Judge Crotty initially seemed included to release the defendant, asking the Assistant US Attorney how he could claim a risk of flight given Chandler's job and sole custody of his young child. But the AUSA hammered on Chandler's previous guilty plea to first degree manslaughter, and cited body camera footage being given to the defense.

  Judge Crotty asked whether the street in the cited gang name was in The Bronx - no, the gang was formed on the West Coast - then asked about seven shell casings.

Judge Crotty quoted Judge Netburn from the initial Magistrates Court transcript, about looking to the underlying felony under a Felon in Possession charge. Here, it is manslaughter. Judge Crotty ordered Chandler to remain detained.

Now in the Spring of 2021, trial is looming. The US Attorney's Office has put in photos from social media, and cited "Hood Day." Judge Crotty just finished the jury trial of a carpenters' union official, and this one is next.

The case is 19-cr-867, US v. Chandler (Crotty).
