Two Dozen in Upper Manhattan Drug Case Getting Huge Video Little MDC Computer Time

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 6 – Christopher Santos and more than a dozen others have been indicted for a narcotics conspiracy in Upper Manhattan.

   On September 15, 2023 co-defendant Mercedes appeared with only his lawyer before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods.Inner City Press was there.

 Mercedes had missed a September 6 mass proceeding at which a schedule had been set, with Speedy Trial Act time excluded through December 12, 2023. 

The initial complain describes drug sales in front of 2304 Amsterdam Avenue, near 174th Street.

 Jump cut to February 6, 2024, when Judge Woods courtroom was full, with some defendants out on bond in the gallery, with lawyers, and others defendants in the jury box. One defense lawyer got a big laugh when he pointed to his client, the foreman in that good lucking jury.

  At the defense's request, the case was put over into June. There is a new NYPD / TARU video, 5 terabytes, that can barely be seen on the computers in the MDC. Expect severance - and, the prosecutors said, plea bargains.

The case is US v. Santos, et al., 22-cr-522 (Woods)
