Yonkers Man Charged With Crack Conspiracy Asked Bail but Denied now Guilty on all Counts

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 24 –  Johnny Perez a/k/a Ghost was detained on crack conspiracy charges.        

       On January 13, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held a proceeding on Perez's request to be released. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The request cited the spread of COVID in the MDC; Perez' lawyer said he would not reside in Yonkers used for the charge conduct but rather a three bedroom apartment in The Bronx.

 Judge Engelmayer affirmed the Magistrate Court decision to keep Perez detained.

Jump cut to October. Co-defendant Davon Mial starts trial October 17, and the courtroom will be partially sealed. Inner City Press was unaware of the October 3 hearing - some District Court have centralized public notice of sealing requests, rather than a needle in a hay stack - but continued to follow the case.

On October 24, after jurors asked for transcripts to buy videos, lab reports, and "GX 3005 in larger form," they returned guilty verdicts on all counts, with Count 1 put between 28 and 280 grams.

The case is US v. Mial, 21-cr-499 (Engelmayer)
