Naranjo In Ecuador Made No Probation Calls Now Quito Documents Show Why Time Served

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – Luperio Naranjo was out on supervised release when he traveled to Ecuador - then stopped calling in to Probation. 

 On September 24 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York  Judge Jed S. Rakoff held a Violation of Supervised Release proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  The Assistant US Attorney said the Office could live with release on bond. An address on 82nd Street in Jackson Heights was listed (Inner City Press is not publishing it in full, voluntarily).

But Judge Rakoff emphasized Naranjo's not calling in from Ecuador and said there is a risk of flight. Naranjo was ordered detained, while his lawyer Jason Foy said he was trying to get documents from Ecuador.

 He did, and it worked.

On November 10, before continuing with the MiMedx criminal jury trial, Judge Rakoff held Naranjo's sentencing. Foy's documents were accepted to show that Naranjo's failure to return from Ecuador was not willful disrespect of the Court.

 So Judge Rakoff, showing mercy, sentencing him to time served - then left to get to the MiMedx trial. The lawyers called after, to dismissed Specification One. Through the deputy, it was done. It worked.

The case is US v. Naranjo et al., 13-cr-351 (Rakoff)
