In SDNY Ceruti Face 30 Years But US Attorney Urges Time Served Sealing Transcript No Answers

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 13 -- Samuel Ceruti was changed with being part of a conspiracy, based in the Astoria Houses in Queens, of stealing construction equipment with deadly weapons.

He faced a Guidelines sentence of 360 months or thirty years to life.  

But Ceruti become a government cooperator and on March 13, 2020 in the courtroom of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Victor Marrero the US Attorney's Office, represented in the case by Jason Swergold, urged that Ceruti be released and that the transcript be sealed.   

While there was apparently no procedure for the press or public to contest the sealing of the formal transcript, actually imposition of sentence was put off as the US Attorney's Office and apparently Judge Marrero's chambers inquire with the Bureau of Prisons to make sure Ceruti is released right away.

Inner City Press, alone in the not-sealed courtroom gallery on March 13, will have more on this. Its questions are not being answered by that Office, on US v. Nejad, US v. Bright, and US v. Scott (OneCoin).

 This case is US v. Ceruti, 15-cr-878 (Marrero).
