Calvin Hudson Released From MCC To Prepare Loansharking Defense Amid Coronavirus Crisis

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 19 -- Calvin Hudson has been detained in the MCC in lower Manhattan since mid 2019 on charges including loansharking. But now as the time for trial approaches, his lawyer is unable to meet with him given the Bureau of Prisons banning all visits including legal visits.

  It's worse than that. To review the discovery in his case, largely considering of recorded phone calls converted into computer audio files, there is in Hudson's part of the MCC only one computer for 106 inmates, and it is directly under the loud public TV.

  Citing these factors as well as Hudson's age and the Coronavirus crisis, on March 19 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Judge Colleen McMahon ordered Hudson released into home incarceration, so he can help prepare his defense.

 Inner City Press, along in the courtroom on March 19, has previously reported on the cases of Hudson's two co-defendants, here and here. And we'll have more on this case. It is US v. Hudson, 19-cr-496 (McMahon).
