Defendant Detained on VOSR Disputed Rikers Calls Now Bronx Criminal Records Unsealed

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 20 – Alhasana Hydara was sentenced to two years in prison on April 9, 2021, on bank fraud charges, with three years of supervised released. 

 On August 3, 2023, detained while awaiting a violation of supervised release proceeding he consented to adjourn to September 1, Hydara through CJA counsel argued to be released on bond.

The argument was before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge James L. Cott. Inner City Press was there. 

 The prosecutor quoted from jail calls recorded in Rikers Island, saying Hydara had tried to get another to take responsibility for a gun. The defense said if so, that wouldn't prove the gun was his client's.

  But Judge Cott said detention would continue, and could be revisited September 1 before District Judge Victor Marrero, or the Part 1 Judge before then.

On February 16, 2024, co-defendant Moukhamede Fall wrote it asking for time served with six months home confinement in advance of sentencing set for February 23.

On May 20, Judge Marrero signed a redacted order commanding that records of the NYC Law Department at 900 Sheridan Avenue in The Bronx be delivered to SDNY on or before May 24.

 The case is US v. Hydara, 20-cr-473( Marrero / Cott)
