On Illegal Reentry from Dominican Republic Detention Order Is Upheld Now Plea March 21

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 16 – Saul Polanco-Gomez, detained awaiting trial on charges of illegal re-entry, asked for a second time to be released on bond.  

 On March 15, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John P. Cronan convened a bail review proceeding. Inner City Press went and covered it.

  Polanco-Gomez had been denied release on his first request in this case, by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger. District Judge Cronan said he would review it de novo, because that is the standard and also some circumstance had changed.

  But not enough. 

 Judge Cronan recited a series of illegal re-entries from the Dominican Republic dating back to 2009. He said defendant's ties to the community - a cousin and friends - were not enough to not make him a risk of flight, in his desire to stay in the US.

  Judge Cronan said he ordered continued detention, then turned to what he said should be an early trial date.

  The Federal Defender countered that her client now wanted to plea guilty, to a Pimintel letter, next week. It will be next Tuesday at 10 am.

 The case is USA v. Polanco-Gomez, 22-cr-488 (Cronan)
