Food Deliverer From Burkina Faso Is Charged With Sex With 14 Year Olds So SDNY Detained

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

SDNY COURTROOM Exclusive, Oct 21 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 20, a detention proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger on Fabrice Tontisabo. Inner City Press, after some initial hindrances to access, was there.

 The US Attorney's Office had announced "the arrest of FABRICE TONTISABO for persuading, inducing, enticing and coercing two 14-year-old minors to engage in sexual activity.  TONTISABO was arrested this morning and will be presented later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger in Manhattan federal court."

   Before Lehrburger, who on the same day allowed an indicted crypto-currency fraudster to phone in to his presentment from JFK airport to avoid detention, and ultimately to fly back to Bermuda, listed reasons to detain Tontisabo, who is from Burkina Faso and works in food delivery.

  He alleged did it a second time, and used alcohol and marijuana. Tontisabo had two friends in the gallery where Inner City Press was the only media; they were ready to sign his bond. But not bond was offered. Tontisabo will be detained pre-trial.

The case is US v. Tontisabo, 21-mj-8751 (Lehrburger).
