In SDNY Pakistani Extradited From Nigeria Pleads Guilty To Sending Heroin to US

By Matthew Russell Lee, @SDNYLIVE

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – A Pakistani man accused of trying to import heroin into the US and just extradited from Nigeria was arraigned on April 29, 2019 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate's courtroom, presided over for the week by Magistrate Judge Kevin Nathaniel Fox. Inner City Press was present in person and reported on the presentment, which was not otherwise announced.

In the courtroom that day, along with Inner City Press as the only media, were several heavily bearded US agents. This shacked defendant Muhammad Khalid Khan, with the same genial Pashto interpreter as in the a recent SDNY Taliban case covered by Inner City Press, pled not guilty. His Federal Defenders lawyer did not in this proceeding seek bail, and later conferred with the also FD lawyer in the Taliban case.

  Now more than a year later, this on September 7: "Dear Judge Broderick: I represent Muhammad Khalid Khan in the above referenced matter. Mr. Khan’s case is currently on the Court’s calendar for September 15, 2020. With the consent of the government, it is respectfully requested that the case be put over for a two-week period. It is anticipated that Mr. Khan will enter a plea of guilty at the next appearance, however, counsel needs additional time to make certain that he understands the plea offer extended by the government. I am advised by chambers that September 29, 2020, is a convenient date for the Court.

  On September 24, Khan's lawyer wrote in to ask for another four weeks, citing an eye infection and COVID quarantine requirements.

  On November 10, Judge Broderick held a lengthy change of plea proceeding, with consecutive interpretation. Khan pled guilty to importing heroin to the U and to money laundering. He asked a number of question, for example on what papers Judge Broderick was asking if he'd read. Judge Broderick patiently answered, and accepted the plea.

 The case is US v. Khan, 18-cr-830 (Broderick).
