After Drug Gang Sweep In The Bronx One Defendant Detained Another Freed for Mother

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

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, April 1-  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on March 31, a detention or release proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave on a short man arrested that morning in a multi-defendant drug gang sweep in The Bronx.

  Inner City Press covers the SDNY Magistrates Court as it has The Bronx, sometimes alone in the gallery, as it was on March 31. Story here.

  The man, Joseph Rivera, was aka-ed in the unsealed complaint as "Shorty." Most of his co-defendants got detained, but the Assistant US Attorney in this case said Rivera could be released on his own signature, with two weeks to find two co-signers for a $75,000 bond (and to come back on April 1 for a GPS bracelet).

The reason? Rivera is the sole caretaker for his mother, who has dementia. Judge Cave thanked the parties for their compassion.

  On April 1, another co-defendant was present, also named in Counts 14 and 15. He was detained - on consent, with time excluded until May 2.

     The case is US v. Done, et al., 22-cr-192 (Rakoff / Cave)
