United States v. Klasinc

Defendant, a 1992 figure skating Olympian from Slovenia, a country which does not extradite to America, won bail appeal despite having no contacts in the Southern District of New York or elsewhere in the country.  Defense argued that Klasinc, charged with defrauding the federal COVID-19 economic relief program, faced a delayed trial start due to the pandemic and that risk of flight was ameliorated due to conditions of home confinement in apartment to be rented solely for release on bail.
