Man Charged With Interstate Threats Plead Guilty Pro Se Mid Trial As Victims Wait in Hall

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 29 – A man charged with threats of physical harm by interstate communications was extradited from Canada to the US and on June 16 demanded to represent himself.

   Jeremy Joseph appeared  in U.S. District Court of for the Southern District  of New York Magistrates Court, which Inner City Press covers. SDNY Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger had Federal Defenders serve as stand-by counsel.

  He (or they) were to re-appear that afternoon before District Judge J. Paul Oekten at 4:30 pm. Inner City Press went there, but the door was locked.

Subsequently, the Assistant US Attorney wrote in that the proceeding will be on June 23 (and that Jeremy Joseph also faces charges in Texas, with a docket number under which his SDNY 5(f) order was initially mis-filed).

On November 22, in the run-up to the trial scheduled for November 27, the defendant submitted his own request for subpoenas, on which names were redacted. One was denied, the other deemed moot.

On November 28, Inner City Press attended the trial. In the middle of the testimony of a victim witness, a break was taken for Joseph to confer with his stand-by counsel about his options. She re-emerged from the holding cell to say that it is likely Joseph will plead guilty on November 29. The prosecutors said they would be prepared with more victim testimony, just in case.

On November 29, Inner City Press went. Judge Oetken said if there was no plea, the trial would continue. The Federal Defender said it would be inconsistent with the Sixth Amendment for her to take over the cross examination that morning. Half an hour later, Jeremy Joseph said he was talking an open plea. He recounted his graduate degree and more.

 The case is US v. Joseph, 23-cr-68 (Oetken / Lehrburger)
