In SDNY Morales Who Skipped Court Date But Needs Methadone Is Bailed To Avoid MCC Lockdown

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 4 --   Julio Morales was supposed to show up, but didn't have car fare, on February 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, before Judge J. Paul Oetken.  

On March 4 Julio Morales appeared before SDNY Magistrate Judge Kevin N. Fox, in custody. His Federal Defender, Jennifer L. Brown, told Judge Fox that Morales has been trying to move to Middletown.    

She argued that given his drug dependence and need for 100 mg of methadone per day, detention in the Metropolitan Correctional Center which has been on lock-down for a week would not help.    

Judge Fox apparently agreed - he ordered Morales freed on $2500 bond, secured only by his signature. Hours later Inner City Press, which was the only media in the Mag Court during Morales' bond hearing, witnessed and filmed a large group entering the MCC with identical rolling bags. Perhaps this methadone issue will soon be solved. The case is US v. Morales, 16-cr-340 (Oetken / Fox).
