Man Praising Pennsylvania Jail Gets Time Served After DOJ Commits Not To Violate Him

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 27 – Hakeem Baldeo has been up on three alleged violations of supervised release.  

 On March 26, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held a change of plea and sentencing proceeding. Inner City Press covered both.

  Judge Rakoff appeared to come into the proceeding with some incarceratory sentence mind for the case, which he called tragic. But advocacy not only by the defense, but als in this instance the AUSA, resulted in time served.  

The defense praised the programs in the Cumberland County Prison in Carlyle, Pennsyvania, and recounted what he called possible medical malpractice in the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla.  

 The defense's footnote 2 was that "The Government represented that as part of the resolution of the specifications it will not move to violate Mr. Baldeo as a result of the Pennsylvania charge." 

 But the AUSA, at least initially, said all this meant is that they did not have any current intent to violate.

Judge Rakoff said it would not be possible to go forward with this unclarity, that Mr. Baldeo had a right to know. The AUSA made the commitment.

And it went forward, with time served and best wishes.

The case is US v. Baldeo, 18-cr-179 (Rakoff)
