Bazemore in Essex Jail Charges As Felon In Possession Is Charged For Calls To Lawyer

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 1 –  James Bazemore is charged with being a felon in possession. In the Essex County Jail where he is, he is charged money to call his lawyer.  

 On December 1, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ernesto Ramos held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  The AUSA assigned is from the SDNY's White Plains office where, he said, they do the arraignment before "wheeling out" the case to a judge and getting a "CR" docket number.   

Bazemore's lawyer, during the proceeding, asked Bazemore to call him once he get a copy of the post-arrest statements that he made.

Bazemore replied that he has only $2 left in his account and his last call to the lawyer cost a dollar and change.   Should it be this way?

The case is US v. Bazemore, 20-cr-573 (Ramos)
