New Charges LT? Nice!

Time for another GoFundMe Campaign?

In addition to an exponential increase in the relevant CTRs, the Superseding Indictment contains new allegations of criminality against the defendant, involving his improper cashing of doubly-endorsed fraudulent checks. These new allegations, which resulted in additional discovery that served upon prior counsel, must now be examined and evaluated by newly-retained counsel who was only formally substituted into this case yesterday. Thus, new counsel must not only review Drago's practices in filing tens-of thousands of CTRs, but must now also examine the Superseding Indictment's extended approximately six-year period for improperly cashed double endorsed checks. Because the double-endorsed checks were not obtained pursuant to the Search Warrant, these new allegations are, like the increased number of CTRs, not at a1l affected by the suppression of evidence obtained pursuant to the Search Warrant. See United States v. Gambino, 59 F.3d 353,357 (2d. Cir. 1995) (granting complexity and speedy trial waived to grant counsel further time to prepare in order to ensure a fair trial).
