NYS Inmate Who Wrote to SDNY in 2022 about 2016 Violations Is Now Detained on Them

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 23 – Eric Orozco was sentenced to 10 years in Federal custody in 2008. In May 2022, now in New York State prison in Woodbourne, NY, Orozco mailed a handwritten letter seeking to start proceedings on violations of supervised release from 2016. 

 On May 17, 2022, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan issued an order that "The Court is advised that there is no supervised release violation charged, there is nothing for this Court to 'help to start.' Denied."

  But on May 23, 2023, Eric Orozco was brought before SDNY Magistrate Judge Barbara C. Moses - on violations of supervised release from 2016. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.

  Before the formal proceeding began, Judge Moses summoned into the Magistrate Judges' robing room Eric Orozco's Federal Defender, who had also represented him in 2008, and the newer AUSA. The Probation officer came down to the courtroom.  

 The charges or specifications were read out: possession of a gun, consorting with a felon who had a gun, and marijuana.

Since Orozco is still legally in state custody, no bail argument was made. Judge Kaplan will see Eric Orozco on May 31 at 11 am. 

The case is US v. Orozco, 08-cr-52 (Kaplan / Moses)
