When Hicks Pled Guilty As Felon With Gun 2 Marshals Awaited Remand But Epilepsy Cited

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 12– Maurice Hicks came to plead guilty on October 12 to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held the change of plea proceeding at 2:30 pm. Inner City Press covered it.  

Judge Woods pushed an unrelated civil matter from 3 pm to 3:30 pm, for what he called an emergent matter in a criminal case: this one. There is mandatory remand after a conviction or guilty plea as a felon in possession of a firearm.  

 Hicks' lawyer said he has been having epileptic seizures, and that she will be asking at sentencing for no jail time. The Assistant US Attorney said his Office was not asking a change of bail conditions - that is, not asking for remand.

 Judge Woods methodically asked for evidentiary bases to not follow the presumption (or mandatory remand). There were two US Marshals in the back of the courtroom gallery, where Inner City Press was.

Judge Woods ruled that Hicks can remain out on bond, while warning him if he does not return for sentencing he can be arrested and imprisoned for bail jumping. 

The case is US v. Hicks, 21-cr-674 (Woods)
