Man Who Sold Gun In Front of Bronx Building Is Ordered Released But US Says Will Appeal

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 27 – Akeba Palmer was arrested on November 22 and charged with selling a gun to a confidential source in front of his building in the Bronx, with a child with him.  

On November 27 he was brought before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Saral L. Cave. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court. 

 Palmer had five supporters, including a girl, in the gallery. The AUSA noted the defendants prior convictions, including for armed robbery of a food delivery person, back in the Aughts. 

  The CJA lawyer said that was a long time ago, and that Palmer is himself a food delivery man now.  Judge Cave said Palmer could be released but only after co-signers are vetted; he cannot, she said, work as a food delivery person.

   The AUSA said his Office will be appealing to the Part 1 Judge Victor Marrero.

Inner City Press will continue to follow the case. It is US v. Palmer, 23-mj-7289 (Cave) - still under seal an hour after the bond order, and thus not trackable in PACER.
