Bronx Men Charged With Murder and Shooting on Video Denied Bail Now Rap Songs Cited

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Dec 14 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on August 19, a bail review was held by Magistrate Judge Barbara C. Moses on a defendant, Boss Terrell, charged with playing a role in a murder and being caught on video shooting a gun a month later in The Bronx.  Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court.

  Terrell had two lawyers - it being a death penalty eligible case, he has Learned Counsel - and his parents in the gallery. His father was wearing a New York Giants jersey with [Lawrence] Taylor written on it. Defense counsel said he worked for the Housing Authority until a co-worked dropped a refrigerator back on him.
  Judge Moses expressed sympathy for the parents, but declined to grant bail, on both the danger to the community and the risk of flight prongs. Time was allowed for the defendant to tell his year-old son to remember him. Then he was gone.

  Afterward Inner City Press gleened that while the change of being released had been very low, at least this way the defense got some discovery, for example learning about the video of the July 2020 incident.

Jump cut to December 14, when co-defendants were presented in the Magistrates Court, before Mag Judge James L. Cott. For detention, a pawnshop robbery in Queens, violence including murder and the use of social media and hip hop music to brag about it were cited. It was too much: detention was ordered, at least pending the next proceeding before Judge Furman. Inner City Press will stay on the case(s).

The case is US v. Terrell, 22-cr-343 (Furman / Moses)
