North Carolina Man Who Got 300 Months for Crack & Detained For Shooting Now State Trial

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 –   Dane Norford was sentenced to 300 months in prison for crack dealing in 2003, in North Carolina.

Then on Supervised Release on April 14, 2023 in New York, he is accused of shooting a gun at a car containing a co-worker.

  On July 28, 2023 Norford in detention was presented before U.S. District for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Valerie Figueredo and asked for release on bail. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.

  The Federal Defender questioned if there was any video of the incident. The AUSA said it made sense to let the now-assigned Judge make the decision. Magistrate Judge Figueredo agreed and detained Norford, the last case of the week.

On August 2, Norford's Federal Defender wrote to Judge Engelmayer seeking release on bail, citing to Norford's state case lawyer Gary J. Lesser, Esq and then redacting a sentence.

Norford was released on $50,000 unsecured bond. On November 27, 2023, the AUSA wrote in that his state trial is scheduled for February 21, 2024 and asked that the next status update be due after February 28, 2024.

 The case is US v. Norford, 23-cr-221 (Engelmayer)
