NYC Worker Who Sold Gun For Synagogue Attack Now Set to Plead Guilty on March 14

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

SDNY COURT EXCLUSIVE, March 13 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on December 2, a detention or bond proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron on a man charged with selling guns to two men already in state custody for plans to "shoot up a synagogue," Christopher Brown, 21, and Matthew Mahrer, 22.

  Presented in Federal court on December 2 was defendant / gun-seller Jamil Hakime, who works with detained youth at the NYC Administration for Children's Services. Inner City Press was present, the only media (and only non-involved person) there. Live-tweeted thread (more on Patreon here) vlog here

Jump cut to January 24, 2023: the case has been indicted, and wheeled out to Judge Analisa Torres. She held a proceeding, and Inner City Press attended. Discovery is ongoing; the AUSA said the phones of the two co-conspirators are being reviewed and Hakime will get some but not all of it.

The Federal Defender said the proposed protective order is disputed; he will abide by it while Judge Torres considers the issue.

On March 13, Judge Torres docketed an order that Hakime is set to change to plea - that is, to guilty - on March 14: "ORDER as to Jamil Hakime: The Court shall hold a change of plea hearing for Defendant Jamil Hakime on March 14, 2023 (Signed by Judge Analisa Torres on 3/13/2023)." Inner City Press will continue to cover the case.

   Back from December 2, the thread.

The case is now US v. Hakime, 22-cr-699 (Torres)
