On Supervised Release from 2015 Drug Case Aryeetey Indicted Now Wants New Lawyer

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 8 – Ivanjoel Aryeetey was sentenced then resentenced in a drug case, then put under supervised release.

  On September 26, 2023 he reappeared in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrates Court on violations of supervised release. Inner City Press was there. 

The AUSA said he had a conference before District Judge John P. Cronan the next day, and that it was unclear where he has been living, while failing drug tests.

   The CJA defense lawyer said his girlfriend was in the courtroom - she was, saying "you got this, we got this" at the end - and that he could be released to live there.

Magistrate Judge Wang, noting the standard on VOSRs, ordered him detained pending seeing Judge Cronan. 

From Judge Cronan on September 27: "ORDER that Defendant Ivanjoel Aryeetey be released on bail with the condition of home confinement with location monitoring at the discretion of the Probation Office. The parties shall appear for a status conference on January 23, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. (Signed by Judge John P. Cronan on 9/27/2023)

  Then Aryeetey was arrested and now indicted as a felon in possession of a gun, on 163rd Street in Bronx, and the the new case was initallly assigned to Judge J. Paul Oetken.

It was consolidated back to Judge Cronan, to whom Aryeetey's CJA counsel directed a letter on June 4 that Aryeetey wants a new counsel for trial. On June 7, Judge Cronan set a June 13 hearing.

The overall case is US v. Burrell, et al., 15-cr-95 (Cronan)

  The new case is US v. Aryeetey, 23-cr-561 (Oetken)
