Perez With Indicted Lawyer  Waived del Valle Issue Now Pleads Guilty in SDNY Mag Court

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 11 – Back on March 30, 2023 defense attorney Telesforo Del Valle was arrested for, in essence, buying clients. 

  On April 28, his paying client Jose Manual Perez was asked in a Curcio hearing if he accepted continuing with potentially conflicted counsel.

 It was delegated to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court. 

  Perez, in detention and with an interpreter, said his children had hired del Valle off the Internet. He waived the conflict and said he wanted to continue with del Valle. He was told he could not raise the issue in the future, including in any appeal. 

Jump cut to March 11, 2024, when the case was pushed back another month to "allow the parties to further their discussions about a pretrial resolution."

On June 11, 2024 Inner City Press was in the SDNY Magistrates Court when Perez with new counsel pled guilty. It was referred to Judge Marrero later in the day, with sentencing already set for September 6, 2024.

  The case is US v. Perez, 23-cr-154 (Marrero)
