East Harlem Crack Dealer Was Denied Release Now Co-Defendant Bailed on VOSR

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 10 – Tito Llanes is incarcerated for selling crack in East Harlem.

On July 15 he and his lawyer argued for compassionate release amid the Coronavirus pandemic, before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Assistant US Attorney Christopher Clore emphasized that the Bureau of Prisons denied Llanes' request in a single day, that his was not the type of case referred to by the Attorney General as militating for release. 

  Llanes' lawyer Womble disagreed, but to no avail. Release was denied.

Jump cut nearly four years later, on June 10, 2024 co-defendant Dylan Williams was brought into SDNY Magistrates Court, from Rikers Island. Inner City Press was there. While the US Attorney's Office agreed to release on $25,000 bond, Probation recommended detention. Thread:

Probation: He's been on supervision only a year, and he's been arrested twice. His adjustment is poor

Probation: Our concern is, I'd visit him on 148th Street but we was rarely there, only when I gave a heads up. We think detention is appropriate at this time. Judge: I'll give warnings and ask him to call me. Probation: Can we verify his address?

Judge: And detain him until then? Probation: Yes. CJA defense lawyer: I understand he can stay there.

Judge: I am prepared to release you today. Speak to me by phone. If you violate my condition you'll be sent to the MDC, not Rikers.

A Violation of Supervised Release Hearing is set for June 27, 2024, at 12:30 p.m.

The case is US v. Williams, 18-cr-420 (Carter / Cave)
