After Car Chase With Undercover Cops Person Was Bailed Now Supervised Release Review

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 27 – A person named Rodney Person was brought in shackled on December 12, 2019 into the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court, charged with a Violation of Supervised Release. Inner City Press was there, and reported on it.

  The Assistant US Attorney described a car chase, a chase on foot, a physical confrontation. He asked for detention.

   Person's lawyer, on the other hand, said that the police who chased Person were undercover and not in uniform; his client fled from fear. He pointed to the near empty gallery of the Magistrates Court, where Inner City Press and a handful of others including Person's mother were waiting.

   Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave asked where Person is living. 1150 College Avenue was the answer.

  She ordered him bailed for a $50,000 bond, with the next appearance on January 7 before Judge Batts. The indictment before her, back in the day, listed crack sales "in the vicinity of 1150 College Avenue (Paragraph 4c-d).

 Jump cut to October 27, 2021, when the now assigned District Judge Richard M. Berman had a proceeding with and about Person. Inner City Press again covered it.

   While the long time AUSA expected a plea and sentencing, Judge Berman pushed back. He said he wanted to assess how supervision was going, and to improve it -- the stop the roller coaster.

  The AUSA pointed out that Person was "going in" on state charges and would like to know what he faced on the Federal side. Judge Berman said, come back when you get out. And he hoped for a not so bad time in.

The case is US v. Person, 09-cr-983 (Berman).
