Ap­peals judges balk at free­ing N.Y. man

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

A two-judge ap­peals panel on Tues­day re­fused a plea to im­me­di­ately re­lease a New York busi­ness­man who has been jailed for 18 months with­out charge de­spite strong ev­i­dence he was fleeced and ex­torted by cor­rupt pros­e­cu­tors. In­stead, the two judges sent the money-laun­der­ing case of Ja­cob Ostre­icher back to the trial judge, or­der­ing her to re­con­sider fa­vor­able ev­i­dence she pre­vi­ously threw out at the urg­ing of a pow­er­ful ju­di­cial of­fi­cial who is now un­der ar­rest.
