Bwog just checked in with a representative from the office of Hershel Katz, Adam Klein’s attorney, who confirmed that Klein’s court date remains January 18th. There have been conflicting reports, but that’s the word from the attorney.
More news this morning about Coles and Perez. Coles gave an interview to reporters at the Manhattan Detention Center yesterday claiming that “this whole thing has been exaggerated. It’s been blown up to the umpeenth,” according to the Daily News. Coles also told reporters that when Jose Perez (aka Stephan Vincenzo) was roused by police early Tuesday morning, he asked for a jacket and cops offered him a Columbia sweatshirt, apparently laughing. Coles told reporters that he planned to finish his time at Columbia: “Going to Columbia was my dream,” he said. The News also reports that Klein left the Manhattan Detention Center yesterday wearing his mother’s sunglasses and jacket to shield him from the cameras.
Updates to follow.
