In SDNY Velez Virtually Pleads Guilty As Judge Chides BOP For Still Requiring Quarantine

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
Honduras - The Source - The Root - etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 19 –  Defendant after co-defendant on December 5, 2019 charged with drugs and guns under the same just-unsealed indictment were presented and either detained or offered conditional of bail in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court before Magistrate Judge Barbara Moses.

 Inner City Press, the only media in the Magistrates Court for these, has covered the case since, including through the now seemingly receding COVID pandemic.

 Inner City Press noted the  lead defendant Carmelo Velez, a/k/a Jugg, got the Federal Defender, which seems to be a trend.

Now on May 25, 2021, Velez came before Judge Valerie E. Caproni to plead guilty. In the run-up, Judge Caproni remarked she wishes the BOP would stop requiring quarantine after every in person court appearance, particularly for those vaccinated. (A Magistrate Judge later on May 25 said Courtroom 5A should re-open next month).

  Velez' sentencing has been set for September 21 at 11 am.

This case is US v. Velez et al., 19-cr-862 (Caproni).
