Woman Who Dealt in Stolen US Treasury Checks Gets Sentencing Transcript Sealed

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 10 – Francisco Jose Maria was charged with being part of a conspiracy to steal and cash U.S. Treasury checks. 

       On June 14, 2021 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul G. Gardephe held a change of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

   The defendant when the time came described getting checks he knew where stolen, and passing them on to another, who in term passed them on until they were cashed.

Judge Gardephe accepted the plea.

On November 10 co-defendant Loren Rubio was up for sentencing. Her lawyer described a series of abuses and urged a time served sentence. The AUSA still wanted a year jail time. A request was made to seal the entire transcript. So what can be reported? A full 24 hours later it read, "See Judgment for terms of sentence." But the judgment was not in the docket. Watch this site.

The case is overall US v. Maria et al., 19-cr-868 (Gardephe)
