Rosario Charged with Oxy Wants Young Adult Opportunity Program But Gun So Pleads Guilty

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 21 – Jordan Rosario was arrested on August 18, 2023 on 174th Street and Manor Avenue in The Bronx, charged with selling oxycodone and having a Taurus .40 pistol with nine rounds. 

 On January 22, 2024 Rosario and his Federal Defender appeared before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the courtroom. 

 There was discussion of the SDNY Young Adult Opportunity Program - and whether the gun charge disqualifies Rosario from it. The came up recently, with an affirmative answer, before SDNY Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in a case also covered by Inner City Press.

   Judge Engelmayer said that the time had come to set a trial date, and did: April 8, 2024.

 The Federal Defender said if YAOP is unavailable, she would anticipate a disposition and not trial. She asked for the protective order to be expanded so she can show the discovery to the defendant's mother. That was approved.

On March 21, 2024, Rosario pled guilty, with sentencing set for July 9 at 11 am.

The case is US v. Rosario, 23-cr-556 (Engelmayer)
