Basketball Standout Ashanae McLaughlin Released on Bank Fraud Charges Without SDNY Exclusion Zone

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – Bronxite Ashanae McLaughlin was the New York Daily News female high school basketball player of the year in 2014. She is or was set for a full scholarship to Seton Hall.

  Then she was named in a federal racketeering indictment, and counts of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. 

 On February 3 McLaughlin was brought in by US Marshals before US District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn.

 In the gallery along with Inner City Press as the only media was McLaughlin's mother, to whom Judge Netburn spoke during the proceeding.   Assistant US Attorney Justin Rodriguez asked that the Soundview area of The Bronx be declared an "exclusion zone" as a condition of McLaughlin being released. But her mother and grandmother live there.

Judge Netburn declined to impose the condition, but asked the mother to try to arrange to meet her daughter outside of the area. 

  Judge Netburn told McLaughlin she might be eligible for the SDNY Young Adult Opportunity Program she co-runs with District Judge Ronnie Abrams, and that Inner City Press has previously covered, here

  Judge Netburn added that the program does not work with anyone accused of a violent crime. The 11-defendant indictment McLaughlin was included in does include violence, though she is charged only with bank fraud, ID theft and racketeering. Can YAOP handle racketeering? Will Seton Hall help? The case is US v. McLaughlin, 20-cr-78 (Torres / Netburn).
