For Bank Fraud and Apple Store Purchases Chaobin Zheng Is Released on $100000 Bond

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

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Oct 28 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 26, a detention or bond proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger on a defendant in a bank fraud scheme, with a Chinese interpreter available by phone. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court.

 The defendant Chaobin Zhang had retained counsel, but the interpreter repeated said he couldn't hear him. The complaint details multiple fraudulent bank transactions in Flushing, Queens and in Manhattan, purchases at the Apple Store, and has ATM photos of the co-defendants.

  The Assistant US Attorney had agreed to a bail package: $100,000 personal recognizance bond, with two co-signers in two weeks; no contact with co-defendants outside the presence of counsel and no new bank accounts without approval.  Retained counsel began referring to the other defendants, then waived any preliminary hearing until the thirtieth day.

The overall case is US v. Zhang, et al., 22-mj-8293 (Lehrburger)
