6 pm & #SDNY Magistrates Court is full of FBI agents awaiting warrants, white shoe CJAs awaiting defendants, & one media...
Federal Defender Weinstein enter 6:20, into cell block to speak with client in the pipelines. This could go late @SDNYLIVE
First up is US v Ahmed (arrrested yesterday 7 pm) and Mohammed (self-surrendered today 3:25 pm, has Arabic interpreter).
Mohammed has retained counsel; Ahmed fills out financial affidavit and gets white shoe CJA lawyer paid for by the public
AUSA seeks detention of Ahmed as danger to community &, like Mohammed Rashid, risk of non-appearance & (like Epstein) flight
AUSA says Ahmed faces 295 months in jail if convicted (over 24 years) and is therefore a danger to flee to... #Yemen (!)
Inner City Press: surprised AUSA in citing flight to #Yemen didn't mention airstrikes there. Will Judge Fox ask? @SDNYLIVE
Ahmed's lawyer says he doesn't face long sentence given patterns "in this District." Quotes his text, "Don't f*ck with me"
Ahmed's lawyer says there a reason he hasn't gone to Yemen since 2017. It's not war - it's blood clots in legs, he can't fly
Judge Fox is asking how Ahmed obtained US citizenship in 1987 without being in US until at least 10 years later.
Judge Fox digging into discrepancies in the PSR on where Ahmed lives in The #Bronx - he's listed uncle's store as his home
Seems Pre Sentencing Report got a lot wrong: his age (now says he's 31), listed as living in a grocery store for 10 years
Correction: it's pre trial services. No interpreter for interview. Now air conditioning has turned off in #SDNY Mag court
#SDNY Judge Kevin Fox says there ARE conditions permitting release of Munif Ahmed accused of massive quantities of drugs
AUSA said the drugs came from China, & Ahmed could flee to #Yemen. The price of release? $250,000 bond - $30,000 in cash
As Judge Fox inquires into Ahmed's blood clots - proffered as ensuring no flight to #Yemen - he's signed something sealed
AUSA says Ahmed's co-def Rashed is not a US citizen, has traveled 2019 to #Egypt, where AUSA says easier to live than #Yemen
In #SDNY at 8:05 pm, awaiting last case in Magistrates Court, the lights dim. Marshal muses it might be another blackout
