Man Charged Was Gunrunning from Arkansas Is Ordered Free to Father in Bronx But US Appeal

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

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Dec 8 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on December 8, a detention or bond proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Valerie Figueredo on a man flown in on a detained from Arkansas, charged with transporting guns bought there by straw men (or straw people) and transporting them for sale and use in The Bronx.

Inner City Press was present, the only media in the Mag Court. Related Mag Court live-tweeted thread (more on Patreon here) vlog here

  The defendant was Adoudulaye Keita; his assigned CJA lawyer asked for release on bond to his father on Sheridan Avenue in The Bronx with his mother in Arkansas co-signing a bond.

  The Assistant US Attorney said that a recorded jail call caught Keita directing another to look into a co-defendant in the case, to see if they were cooperating.

But when Judge Figueredo asked if there was a transcript of the call, she was told there was an Excel spreadsheet of quotes from the call. That was never brought to the Magistrates Court.

 Perhaps, then, to District Judge Loretta A. Preska. When Keita was ordered released once the signatory condition are met, the AUSA said they will be appealing to Judge Preska. Inner City Press will continue to follow the case(s).

The case is US v. Keita, et al., 22-cr-435 (Preska / Figueredo)
