(5) The defendant shall be released upon executing a $200,000. Unsecured Appearance Bond, co-signed by Ingrid Almonte Pichardo, Wendy Fernandez-Gale, Noralis Teron, Elizabeth Victorio De Gomez, Pedro Duran and Daniel Celeclonio., binding the defendant to pay that amount to the United States in the event the defendant fails to appear or fails to surrender as directed for service of any sentence imposed.

Additional Conditions of Release

(6) Upon finding that release by the above methods will not by themselves reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant and the safety of other persons and the community, it is further ordered that the release of the defendant is subject to the condition(s) listed below:

1. Pretrial Services supervision. 2. Curfew with electronic monitoring, with hours to be determined by Pretrial Services. The defendant shall pay all or part of the monitoring, based on ability to pay as determined by Pretrial Services. 3. Surrender all passports, travel documents, etc., to Pretrial Services. Do not apply for new travel documents. 4. Travel restricted to New York and New Jersey, unless otherwise approved by Pretrial Services. 5. Mental health testing and/or treatment as directed by Pretrial Services. 6. Maintain current residence or a residence approved by Pretrial Services. 7 Drug treatment and testing as directed by Pretrial Services. Pretrial Services recommends that all cosigner execute the bond and all travel documents are surrendered prior to the defendant's release on bail.



Violating any of the foregoing conditions of release may result in the immediate issuance of a warrant for your arrest, a revocation of your release, an order of detention, a forfeiture of any bond, and a prosecution for contempt of court and could result in imprisonment, a fine, or both.

While on release, if you commit a federal felony offense the punishment is an additional prison term of not more than ten years and for a federal misdemeanor offense the punishment is an additional prison term of not more than one year. This sentence will be consecutive (i .e., in addition to) to any other sentence you receive.

It is a crime punishable by up to ten years in prison, and a $250,000 fine, or both, to: obstruct a criminal investigation; tamper with a witness, victim, or informant; retaliate or attempt to retaliate against a witness, victim, or informant; or intimidate or attempt to intimidate a witness, victim, juror, informant, or officer of the court. The penalties for tampering, retaliation, or intimidation are significantly more serious if they involve a killing or attempted killing.

If, after release, you knowingly fail to appear as the conditions of release require, or to surrender to serve a sentence, you maybe prosecuted for failing to appear or surrender and additional punishment may be imposed. If you are convicted of:

(1) an offense punishable by death, life imprisonment, or imprisonment for a term of fifteen years or more - you will be fined not more than $250,000 or imprisoned for not more than 10 years, or both;
(2) an offense punishable by imprisonment for a term of five years or more, but less than fifteen years - you will be fined not more than $250,000 or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both;
(3) any other felony - you will be fined not more than $250,000 or imprisoned not more than two years, or both;
(4) a misdemeanor - you will be fined not more than $100,000 or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

A term of imprisonment imposed for failure to appear or surrender will be consecutive to any other sentence you receive. In addition, a failure to appear or surrender may result in the forfeiture of any bond posted.
