With One Lung In the MCC Jail Rocco Requested Freedom And Got It From Judge Carter

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 8 – Andrew Rocco is in the MCC prison during the Coronavirus pandemic and he has only one lung.

On May 1 his lawyer requested that he be released pending his sentencing, noting that Rocco also has asthma and was only this week provided with an albuterol inhaler.

   When Rocco was first remanded he had no stable residence in New York City, his lawyer said. But now he could stay with his brother on Melrose Avenue in The Bronx.

   While he has been in the MCC, including on suicide watch at his request, five inmates in the MCC have tested positive for COVID-19 as of April 30. On Rikers Island, there are 378 positive-tested inmates, and 38 in the Federal cooperators' private GEO prison in Queens which Inner City Press has covered.

  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter, who had denied the applications for release of a number of inmates in recent weeks, on May 8 ordered Rocco released "unless any pending warrants, detainers or other issues are encountered." The case is US v. Rocco, 18-cr-420 (Carter).
