Bronx Man Arrested With Gun Was Indicted in SDNY Now Moving to Dismiss Citing Bruen

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 30 – Nick Laguna was arrested in front of 751 Dawson Street in the South Bronx in April 6, 2023 with a .25 caliber pistol.

He had previously been convicted of, and was sentenced to 16 years in prison for, manslaughter. 

 On August 24, 2023 Laguna was arraigned before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court.  

A woman and an 8-year old girl were the only other people in the Mag court gallery. Both waved at Laguna when he was brought in by US Marshals, in the tan jail uniform of the MDC in Brooklyn (where Sam Bankman-Fried is also detained, although OK-ed to leave daily to meet with his lawyers).

  Laguna pleaded not guilty; his Federal Defender did not make or renew a bail application.

 He was scheduled to be seen by the assigned District Judge Jennifer H. Rearden on September 7, the AUSA said.

Inner City Press attended on September 7. The Federal Defender previewed motions, mention the Second Amendment (the Bruen case?) and asking for a trial date in May 2024. Judge Rearden set a next conference for November 9, at 11:30 am.

At that time, Judge Rearden set a trial date of May 7, 2024, and motions in March.

And on March 30 Laguna's Federal Defenders reiterated his motion to dismiss (and to suppress) citing the Supreme Court's Bruen decision.

The case is US v. Laguna, 23-cr-436 (Rearden / Netburn)
