Musician Disputing Gun Brandishing Got Year & Day Now Detained As Alleges Rape in Jail

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 27 – Joshua Gumora was up for sentencing on November 25, 2020.

He complained that there are drugs in the prisons he has been. He said he is a musician and does not belong in jail.   

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick held the sentencing, which Inner City Press covered.   

 Judge Broderick made a point of asking Assistant US Attorney Daniel Wolf to be sure to made the authorities aware of issues in the sealed pre-sentencing report, and in the non-sealed sentencing submission. (Inner City Press is not publishing them here, nor the name of a victim which was said in connection with a gun brandishing charge).

 Similar follow up was not requested on Gumora's statements about drugs in the prisons, even during lockdown.

 But Judge Broderick imposed a year and a day, so that Gumora can be eligible for good time credit.

And in 2022 Judge Broderick ordered: "ORDER as to Joshua Gumora. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT, on March 28, 2022, the United States Marshals Service shall produce Joshua Gumora, Register Number 87617-054, to the cell block on the fourth floor of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse, to be released to the United States Probation Office. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Vernon S. Broderick on 3/25/2022)."

Jump cut to January 27, 2023, when Gumora was brought back into SDNY Magistrates Court. Inner City Press was there. Gumora spoke for himself, powerfully, how his father died while he was in custody and, troubling, that he was raped in jail.

  Magistrate Judge Sarah L. Cave ordered: "ORDER as to Joshua Gumora: A renewed bail hearing is scheduled for Monday, January 30, 2023 at 3:30 pm and will take place in person, in Courtroom 18A, 500 Pearl Street, New York, New York. (Bail Hearing set for 1/30/2023 at 03:30 PM in Courtroom 18A, 500 Pearl Street, New York, NY 10007 before Magistrate Judge Sarah L Cave.) (Signed by Magistrate Judge Sarah L Cave on 1/27/2023)."   But what will be done on Gumora's allegations of rape in jail? He is a whistleblower. Watch this site.

The case is, or was, US v. Gumora, 20-cr-144 (Broderick).
