SDNY Chief Judge Sees 3 Videos of Bronx Gun And Orders Defendant Remanded to MCC

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 19 -- Miguel Nivar was arrested in 2019 and charged with gun possession; he was released on $25,000 bond with a curfew.

   On March 19, Assistant US Attorney Jacob Fiddelman showed a video he said was of Nivar with a gun on Townsend Avenue in the Bronx on March 13 to two judges, with different results.

  He showed the video to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron on Courtroom 23A, where Judge Aaron said that Nivar could remain out of detention. 

 Then AUSA Fiddelman appealed to the day's Part 1 judge, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon one floor above in Courtroom 24A. Judge McMahon watched three video. First she said, that is unmistakenly a gun. Then she said, that sure looks like the defendant.

   She ordered Nivar remanded, telling the two U.S. Marshals waiting in the back, "Officers, he's all yours." Earlier in the afternoon, also with Inner City Press the only media in her courtroom, she had ordered an elderly defendant released from the MCC, here. This case is US v. Nivar, 19-cr-902 (Torres / McMahon).
