IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION
July 23, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JASON SUBLET, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Jeremy Fogel United States District Judge
ORDER REQUESTING RESPONSE FROM UNITED STATES
In July, 2006, this Court entered judgment against Defendant pursuant to a plea agreement and sentenced him to eighty-four months imprisonment. Subsequently, Defendant was charged with violations of state law; the Santa Clara Superior Court entered judgment against Defendant on those charges pursuant to a plea agreement, and sentenced him to three years imprisonment. It is clear from the transcript of the state court proceeding that the trial judge intended the three year term of imprisonment arising from the state conviction to run concurrently with the eighty-four month term of imprisonment arising from the federal conviction. However, following Defendant's transfer from the California Department of Corrections to the Federal Bureau of Prisons ("BOP"), it became clear that the BOP was treating the federal term of imprisonment as consecutive to the state term of imprisonment.
Defendant has written a letter to the Court, requesting review of his sentence. The BOP has responded with a letter of its own, requesting guidance from this Court as to whether the BOP should grant a retroactive concurrent designation in Defendant's case. The United States is directed to file a brief setting forth its position. Such brief shall be filed on or before August 22, 2008.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
