Bronx Man Charged In Rochester With Drugs Is Released on $75,000 Bond In SDNY Mag Court

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

SDNY COURTROOM Exclusive, Oct 27 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 27, a detention proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Barbara C. Moses on Roland Miller. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court. 

  Miller, it emerged, is from Jamaica and lives in The Bronx. But the warrant was from the Western District of New York, Rochester to be specific, where he is charged with cocaine distribution. 

 The Assistant US Attorney argued that Judge Moses should only focus on Martin's lack of connections to Rochester.

This was not accepted, and Martin's quoted statements were found to be double hearsay and ambiguous. He was ordered released on $75,000 bond but one co-signer must sign before he is released. 

In obtaining his Federal Defender, Martin had to explain his $1000 a month to rent a storefront for his planned "Chill Zone" restaurant. This came after SDNY District Judge Jesse M. Furman granted Inner City Press' application to unseal (most of) Michael Avenatti's financial affidavit to get Federal Defenders. But another proceeding, with more / full disclosure, we are not here reporting on.

This case is US v. Martin, 21-mj-10287 (Moses)
