Ortiz Charged With Bank Fraud in 28 Page Sealed Complaint Is Freed on $100000 Bond

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY MAG COURT Exclusive, March 3 – In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on March 3, a bail or detention proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge James L. Cott on a man charged with bank fraud in a 28-page complaint.

Inner City Press covers the SDNY Mag Court(s). Related Mag Court live-tweeted thread (more on Patreon here) vlog here

  The Assistant US Attorney said she hadn't had time to agree to bail conditions with (seemingly retained, that is, not CJA) counsel. Judge Cott asked, not unfriendly, Then why did we begin?
  After a 30 second whispered conversation, the bail conditions emerged: $100,000 bond, with 2 financially responsible co-signers to be found in a week, and a curfew with location monitoring.

  Defense counsel agreed, and it was done; the defendant Leonardo Ortiz was released.

The case is US v. Ortiz, et al., 23-mj-1448 (Cott) - the case was still listed as "under seal" after the proceeding.
