UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 18, 2009
RE: NATOSHA SAUNDERS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Lawrence K. Karlton Senior United States District Judge Sacramento, California
WITHDRAWAL OF PETITION
On October 8, 2008, this officer filed a petition alleging the following violations: Possession of a controlled substance, to wit, marijuana; failure to refrain from places where controlled substances are illegally sold, used, distributed or administered; and failure to refrain from associating with any persons engaged in criminal activity. The matter was placed on the Court's calendar on November 12, 2008, at 9:15 a.m. The matter was continued three months to February 5, 2009, to monitor the offender's progress on supervision. This was done primarily due to the fact that the offender was pregnant and that her boyfriend, a state parolee, was the suspected owner of the marijuana. On February 5, 2009, the matter was continued to March 3, 2009, for purposes of submitting a memo to request dismissal of the aforementioned petition.
During the time the matter was continued, the offender has been in full compliance with all her terms and conditions of supervised release. She is an active participant in the Welfare to Work Program which requires her to take classes and actively seek work Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. She is on her last phase of urinalysis testing and has never produced a positive sample. Home visits made during this time revealed no evidence of contraband.
Due to the aforementioned, it is respectfully requested that the petition filed on October 8, 2008, on the above named offender, be dismissed and the Court hearing set for March 3, 2009 at 9:15 a.m. be taken off the Court's calendar. Further, this officer is requesting permission from the Court to destroy the marijuana that was confiscated during the search on August 21, 2008.
