A senior New York judge recently destroyed the status of two notorious federal prisons in the city during sentencing hearings – saying they were run by “peacocks” who, according to a court transcript, disgusted Are subject to circumstances.
Manhattan federal court Judge Coleen McMahon argued about the inhumane conditions during the sentencing of convicted drug dealer Tiffany Days at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan and the Metropolitan Detection Center in Brooklyn.
McMahon said the lockup was “run by peacocks” who fail to do “anything meaningful” about the conditions in the prisons, according to the transcript of the April 29 sentencing hearing.
The judge said that according to the facilities, “frequent cycling, not staying for a few months or more than a year.”
Days, who pleaded guilty in the Bronx to dealing with cocaine and ecstasy, was held at the MCC – the infamous prison where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in 2019 – before his conviction.
The troubled prison was put on lockdown last year when a handgun was smuggled into the facility – but no charges were ever made in the case.
“There is no continuity, no leadership, no ability to get anything. He said that he is struggling with a crisis ranging from gun smuggling to Jeffrey Epstein, none of which is the fault of Mrs. Daze or any other prisoner whom I have sentenced or will be sentenced.
He said, “It is a finding of this court that the conditions for which she was disgusted are as disgusting, inhumane as I have heard of a Colombian prison, but more so because we are going to be better than that.” They said.
McMahon said he believes Daze was heavily punished for his crime while staying at MCC, but was forced to serve a five-year sentence due to the mandatory minimum sentence.
For days lawyers and the Bureau of Prisons, which runs the facilities, did not respond to requests for comment.
