UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 18, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
BRENT ROGER WILKES, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Larry Alan Burns United States District Judge
ORDER ON MOTION TO CONTINUE SENTENCING [Doc. No. 185]
The United States Probation Report in this case was inexplicably filed 18 days late. The Court has reviewed the defendant's motion to continue the sentencing, currently scheduled for January 28, 2008 [Doc. #185], and the government's response thereto [Doc. #187]. Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 32(e)(2) requires the probation officer to give the defendant and his counsel a copy of the presentence report at least 35 days before the sentencing date. As defendant Wilkes refuses to waive the 35-day notice period, the Court finds the sentencing hearing must be continued.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the sentencing hearing for defendant Brett Roger Wilkes, currently scheduled for January 28, 2008, is VACATED. Sentencing of defendant Wilkes shall occur on February 19, 2008, at 9:30 a.m. No further continuance of the sentencing date will be granted. The government's motion to remand Wilkes to custody is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the United States Probation Office shall forthwith produce any documentation supporting the recommended loss calculation. Unless otherwise included in the foregoing materials, Wilkes' motion for production of "the sentencing documents of his co-defendants" is denied.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the United States Probation Office shall timely file any further documents pertaining to this case, including any addendum to the Probation Report.
