Cesar Abreu on Trial for Narcotics Puts Brother Dario on Stand on His Room in Alphabet City

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 18 – Cesar Abreu was charged with illegally re-entering the United States after being deported. Then he was charged with drugs. Now he is on trial on the latter.  

    On May 17, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman presided over the trial. Inner City Press went and covered it.   

On the stand was an agent putting into evidence photographs of Abreu's kitchen in Connecticut with bags of white powder in this. There were not objections to these exhibits.

The cross examination questions were who seized the powder, the agent or the DEA? The DEA.

On May 18, as often doesn't happened, Cesar Abreu put on a case. It was his half-brother Dario Munoz, who lives on City Island in the Bronx making and restoring furniture. He testifieda about the room in the apartment of Bridget Turk, in a housing project on FDR Drive, that Cesar Abreu lived in. Dario called it Alphabet City and said he went to pick up Cesar's clothes after his arrest. Later Judge Furman held another proceeding that Inner City Press has written to this chambers about.

Inner City Press will continue covering these trials.

The case is US v. Abreu, 21-cr-300 (Furman)
