Man in Upper Manhattan Drug Sales Case Missed Conference But Gets Make-up Mulligan

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 15 – Joan Mercedes and more than a dozen others have been indicted for a narcotics conspiracy in Upper Manhattan.

   On September 15, 2023 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.

   Judge Woods told Mercedes not to miss the December 12 conference. A letter in the docket explains the absence.

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