For Trafficking Girl from NC to The Bronx Paschal Accusing Officer Headed to Ukraine

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 27 – Michael Paschal is charged with sex trafficking a 17 year old girl from North Carolina to Brady Avenue in The Bronx.

He was arrested, and got a white shoe law firm as his Criminal Justice Act counsel. 

 On February 27, 2023 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick has a suppression hearing scheduled.  Inner City Press is covering the case.

On February 24, the US Attorney's Office filed to allow "Officer-1" to testify by deposition.  

The US says Officer-1 will "soon be taking a leave of absence" - followed by a redaction. They says Officer-1 heard the defendant say he thought the law enforcement search and rescue to recover a sex trafficking victim was ridiculous because the victim was turning 18 soon. 

 Trial is scheduled for May 1, 2023; the US says Officer-1 may not have even cell phone access at that time.

On February 27, Inner City Press attended the proceeding. The officer was in the plexiglass witness box used during the Sayfullo Saipov death penalty trial. Paschal's Covington defense lawyer, under the CJA, grilled the officer why he hadn't written down what he claims Paschal said. On re-cross, he asked about his unavailability - with whom would he be working in Urkaine?
"An NGO," was the answer. With a 23 hours train ride from Poland to the capital, and more time to wherever he is deployed.

The case is US v. Paschal, 21-cr-331 (Broderick)
