On Golston US Sealed Part of Gun & Drug Trial Now After Guilty Verdict Wants 123 Months

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 24 – Joshua Golston is charged with using a gun to deal drugs, while a felon. 

On June 8, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn held a jail or bail hearing on Golston. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.  

The prosecutor emphasized that Golston ended 11 years in jail in August 2022 - then got a gun to deal drugs, less than a year later.  

 Golston's Federal Defender said he was making $80 a day at CEO. The prosecutor described a Velcro holster.  

  Judge Netburn ordered Golston detained pending trial.

Jump cut to February 13, 2024 when in advance of his February 27 trial Golston's counsel wrote in that he "consents that the undercover officers testify under mutually agreed-upon pseudonyms. We do not oppose the measures requested to permit Mr. Golston's family to remain in the courtroom during the undercover officers' testimony without the general public - so long as the jury is not informed of this precaution." This assumes that few from the public or press will be there... Deputy AG ruling under 28 CFR 50.9 was awaited, when the US filed...

On February 21, Golston's lawyer wrote in asking that two subpoenas be signed, for Police Officers Rafael Morales and Walter Mikowsky, the latter of whom testified to the grand jury on July 19, 2023.

On February 22, the US said Morales will be available but that Mikowsky testified only as a Task Force Officer - and the Golston's lawyers have not complied with Touhy v. Ragen, 340 US 462 (1951) and DOJ's Touhy regulations.

On March 1, Golston was convicted.

On June 24, the US Attorney's Office asked for 123 months with sentencing set for July 1.

The case is now US v. Golston, 23-cr-362 (Torres)
