NEW YORK (AP) -- The lawyer for a reputed Colombian drug lord facing trial in New York has requested that his client be moved to a different jail cell because he is claustrophobic.
An attorney for Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia asked a federal court judge in Brooklyn to move his client from maximum security to the Metropolitan Detention Center, where he would be with the general population. Attorney Paul Navel says that his client has suffered from claustrophobia since he was a child.
U.S. prosecutors allege that Ramirez Abadia was a leader of a Colombian cartel that shipped cocaine worth $10 billion into the United States between 1990 and 2003.
They also say Ramirez Abadia, whose nickname is ``Lollipop,'' played key roles in the killings of rivals. He was captured last year in Brazil.
