Man Accused of Crack Sales Pleads Guilty, Dec 16 Sentencing, Judge Said To Get Vaccinated

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 19– Dewese Hughes is charged in a crack conspiracy. As of July 20, he had not been vaccinated.

 On July 20, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  Judge Caproni inquired into the case, then set a next conference.

 She said she'd like to hear by then if there will be a pre-trial disposition, or to set a trial date.

She described the difficulties in getting juries: for now, only one jury a day can be picked, and only on three days each week.  

Judge Caproni asked if Hughes has been vaccinated.

Hearing "No," she urged him to do it, saying that the vaccine is being offered in the Bureau of Prisons.

On August 18, Judge Caproni held another proceeding - a change of plea to guilty. Now the sentencing is set for December 16.

 The case is US v. Hughes, 20-cr-536 (Caproni)
