For Armed Robbery in NJ Causing Death Samuels On Trial, Witness Describes Gun & Car

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 27 – Kasheem Samuels on trial this week for armed robberies in The Bronx and Middlesex County, New Jersey, the latter resulting in the death of Andrew Torres.

  On July 19, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos held a final pre-trial conference. Inner City Press covered it.

   Samuels and his attorney want to keep from the jury information about gang membership, where he met witnesses (in prison) and previous offenses.

 Most of these motions in limine were denied on July 19.

It runs from 9:30 to 2:30 from Monday to Friday, Judge Ramos said, giving the jurors the afternoons to take care of things.

 On July 27 Inner City Press in person covered the trial right to 2:30 pm. On the stand, in a plexi-glass boss, was a witness in a white skull cap. He was driven in a car to Middlesex County but said he didn't know what had happened in the hotel room, only that a gun went in.

  Defense attorney Foy asked him, hadn't he wondered aloud if the "Spanish women" had been victims of a sexual assault, and said "You know how Spanish dudes are"? Had he blamed Kash? The AUSA made a number of objections, slightly more than half sustained.

  The witness was driven back to the Bronx, but denied it was to Webster Avenue and 178th Street. 168th, maybe. It was 2:30 pm and the trial day was done. Inner City Press will continue to cover the cases.

The case is US v. Samuels, 18-cr-306 (Ramos)
