Man Released Then Jailed after Threats Says He Wants To Be Sentenced Then Threatens Lawyer

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 8 – Lasyah Palmer was sentenced to 24 months in prison in a narcotics racketeering case in 2019.

He was arrested on a violation of supervised release on July 11, 2023 and admitted to the specification on August 16.

 Having been in detention, he was released on that date pending sentencing.   Then he was arrested again, for allegedly violation an order of protection and sending threats. 

   On August 25, 2023 Palmer was brought before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn and, through stand-in counsel, requested release on bond. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court.

  Judge Netburn said she had no confidence Palmer would not violation his conditions of release again.

He was detained, and is schedule to be before Judge Cote in the week of September 5.

This occurred on September 8, and Inner City Press was there. Palmer wanted to be sentenced, but did not want to admit to the specifications. His CJA lawyer said he wasn't comfortable that any admission would be knowing, so a November 2 hearing was set. Then Palmer dissed the lawyer, who said he had never before by a client been told "I'm going to slap the sh*t out of you;" he asked to be relieved.

  He was, and Judge Cote said that a new lawyer would be appointed. She added that everyone in her courtroom must speak with respect. Palmer spoke for himself, that he'd already told the lawyer he wanted him off the case. He was led away.

  The case is  US v. Holman, et al., 18-cr-41-17 (Cote)
