New York Daily News – Is Park Ave. lawyer Marc Dreier a Blood? Or maybe a Crip?
Federal prison officials are refusing to remove the accused hedge fund swindler from 24-hour lockdown until they determine whether he’s a gang member, attorney Gerald Shargel told a judge Thursday.
"How ludicrous is that?" Shargel told Magistrate Judge Douglas Eaton during a failed attempt to get the Yale grad and Harvard Law School alum released on $10 million bail.
Eaton agreed to look into Dreier’s conditions after Shargel said prison officials told him it will be another three weeks before they can remove Dreier from lockdown at theManhattan Correctional Center.
