Man Detained For 7 Guns in Harlem Is Freed For Colonoscopy After MDC Says He Refused

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 25 – Dexter Washington is detained after fentanyl and seven fire arms including an AR-15-type rifle and other assault weapons were found in his apartment in Harlem.

  On May 25, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Gabrial W. Gorenstein ordered Washington released, after his lawyer said he was being denied access to a colonoscopy. 

  An official from the  Metropolitan Correctional Center in Brooklyn was present on speaker phone and said that Washington has twice refused medical treatment.

 Judge Gorenstein and the Assistant US Attorney concluded that the first refusal was not a refusal, in light of Washington being brought to court. 

 The second refusal occurred on a Sunday, when Washington had been taken to the Special Housing Unit in preparation for a Tuesday colonoscopy. His lawyer said he was denied hot water; there was testimony that hot water is not required, and that Washington had been allowed to take his medication into the SHU with him. 

  Washington was ordered released on a $500,000 bond with four co-signers, GPS and home incarceration but for medical and legal appointments.

 The case is US v. Washington, 23-cr-31 (Schofield / Gorenstein)
