Man In MDC Jail Cites Recent Rape There in SDNY Supervision Call, Halfway House Mulled

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 28 – Fredrick Browne is in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. He says that someone was raped there last week.   

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

  Browne spoke articulately about the lack of medical attention in his previous drug in-patient program, and of stealing from a Target store "because I was hungry."

His Federal Defender said the state judge released him on one dollar bail, to go into the Federal system. 

 Judge Berman was and is seeking a solution, or at least a step forward. Probation said that no more supervision will work, there should be some incarceration and that's it.   

That is not Judge Berman's way - Inner City Press is today publishing his Supervised Release Report, which was generously provided by his Chambers to Inner City Press which covers these proceedings. (Some of Judge Berman's supervision proceedings are conducted by Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave, who has a section at the back of the report.) 

 After a lengthy call - who if anyone if following up on the criminal rape in the MDC was and is unclear - the idea of placing Browne in a half-way house was arrived at, with a report back due in the week.

The case is US v. Browne, 02-cr-661 (Berman / Cave)
