Woman Who Pushed SDNY Officer Faces 10 Days In MDC After 2d Circuit Loss

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 11 – A woman charged with pushing a Court Security Officer in January 2016 in 500 Pearl Street in lower Manhattan now faces 10 days in the Metropolitan Detention Center starting January 18, in quarantine. 

 On December 12 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron held a telephone conference "to address the Defendant's surrender date." Inner City Press covered it.  

 The defendant, Lidya Maria Radin, spoke for herself, at length. She said she wanted to move for Judge Aaron to recuse himself.   

She disputed the last of certified transcript in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld her conviction after a four day bench trial before then Magistrate Judge Henry B. Pitman, which was previous affirmed by Judge Richard J. Sullivan, himself now on the Second Circuit.   

Judge Aaron listened, while Radin's shadow counsel offered apologies. Finally he noted his contempt powers under 28 USC 626(e)(2)

"Summary criminal contempt authority.— A magistrate judge shall have the power to punish summarily by fine or imprisonment, or both, such contempt of the authority of such magistrate judge constituting misbehavior of any person in the magistrate judge’s presence so as to obstruct the administration of justice." 

 With that, the proceeding was over. Will Ms. Radin show up on January 18?

The case is US v. Radin, 16-cr-528 (Aaron).
