Bronx Shoot Out Triggered Trial Now Guilty Verdict In Hours After E 183 St Security Video

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 14 – William Scott is on trial in connection with the firing of a gun outside East 183rd Street in The Bronx on June 23, 2020.

 Inner City Press is covering this felon in possession of a firearm case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York before Judge Analisa Torres.  

 On April 11 the prosecution painstaking showed security video of gunfire by a man in red shorts, a white T-shirt and running shoes they said was William Scott, whom they a/k/a as "Ill Will."

The defense - Scott has two separate CJA counsel, after earlier in the case having the Milbank law firm - introduced other camera angles. 

 SDNY US Attorney Damian Williams came in for a bit, as Inner City Press also noted he did during the recent US v. Eric Spencer / Soho Chanel store robbery trial.

His Assistant US Attorney complained that the defense is not sharing its exhibits in advance.

On April 12, another of Scott's CJA lawyers cross examined a witness, demanding to know "if you said 'pop'!" There were fewer people in the courtroom. The AUSA's request to for a brief re-cross was denied. The US is arguing that Witness B's sale of ecstasy to Scott and others should not come in, or at least not be the subject of cross examination.

On April 13, at the end, Scott's Rule 29 motion was denied by Judge Torres, after the AUSA insisted that they had presented enough evidence, with video and live witnesses and the ATF testimony about inter-state transport.

On April 14 before 2 pm, Judge Torres gave her legal instructions to the jurors. By 3:30 pm, they had returned: guilty.

 The case is US v. Scott, 21-cr-429 (Torres)
