A Manhattan federal court judge on Tuesday denied Michael Cohen’s bid for home confinement in an order Tuesday, writing the convicted financial criminal was trying to “inject himself into the news cycle” in his latest plea for freedom amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Judge William Pauley wrote in the order that he agrees with prosecutors’ assertion Cohen is “manifestly ineligible” for compassionate release.
In a letter last week, Cohen’s lawyers urged the judge to let him finish his term in home confinement because of the coronavirus spreading in New York State.
They argued the Federal Bureau of Prisons is “demonstrably incapable of safeguarding and treating B.O.P. inmates who are obliged to live in close quarters and are at an enhanced risk of catching the virus.”
“That Cohen would seek to single himself out for release to home confinement appears to be just another effort to inject himself into the news cycle,” Judge Pauley wrote Tuesday in siding with prosecutors, who urged he not be released.
“Ten months into his prison term, it’s time that Cohen accept the consequences of his criminal convictions for serious crimes that had far reaching institutional harms,” Judge Pauley added.
Cohen is serving three years in federal prison in Otisville for lying to Congress and making illegal hush-money payments during the 2016 presidential election to porn stars who claim they slept with President Trump. The BOP has confirmed three coronavirus case among inmates — including one at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center.
