Supervision Shift to Florida Denied For Man Ending SDNY Prison Term for Dark Web Drugs

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 1 – A man soon to end a prison term for selling narcotics over the Dark Web has had his bid to shift his supervised release from New York to Florida rejected, at least for now. 

 He pled guilty to the charges in late 2021 accompanied by then SDNY CJA lawyer Telesforo Del Valle, whose sentencing memo in the docket cited veiled threats through social media.   

Now threats are being cited among the reasons to transfer supervision. At a proceeding on July 1, 2024 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl, twice counsel were summoned to the sidebar and the white noise turned up.  

 Ultimately the defendant is to at least begin supervision in New York, with a subsequent application to transfer to Florida possible.

 It was called from the bench an "unusual proceeding" and the SDFL Probation negative decision was deemed hard to understand. White noise and sealed documents in the vault do not assist in shining a light on this.

The case is US v. Hassan, 21-cr-680 (Koeltl)
