IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 26, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
SOTERO MAEDA-HERNANDEZ, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Kimberly K. Mueller
APPLICATION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS AD PROSEQUENDUM; ORDER ISSUING WRIT
Undersigned counsel hereby applies to the Court for the issuance of a writ of habeas corpus ad prosequendum on behalf of Sotero Maeda-Hernandez, who is charged in this district in a Superseding Petition for Warrant or Summons for Offender under Supervision filed July 13, 2007, alleging a violation of supervised release. Mr. Maeda-Hernandez is presently in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons at the Dalby Correctional Facility, 805 North Avenue F, in Post, Texas, under Reg. No. 09407-097.
The petition alleging a supervised release violation was lodged as a detainer against Mr. Maeda-Hernandez in 2007. Mr. Maeda-Hernandez wrote to the Court on January 7, 2008, inquiring about the detainer; the Probation Office answered his letter on behalf of the Court. On September 18, 2008, he wrote to the Probation Office asking to resolve the petition without further delay. He wrote again on November 25, 2008, reiterating his request, and Probation referred the matter to defense counsel to resolve. This application is intended to afford Mr. Maeda-Hernandez an opportunity to answer the petition promptly.
Mr. Maeda-Hernandez further asks that he be retained in federal custody at Sacramento until final disposition of the pending petition, to be returned to the Bureau of Prisons when the proceedings are concluded. His appearance is necessary forthwith in the Eastern District of California.
A proposed order is attached for the Court's convenience.
ORDER ISSUING WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS
The above application, unopposed by the government, is granted and a writ of habeas corpus ad prosequendum is hereby issued. The Bureau of Prisons and the United States Marshal's Service for this district are hereby ordered to produce the named detainee forthwith at the District Court for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento and at any further proceedings to be had in this cause. At the conclusion of the proceedings, the Marshal's Service shall return the detainee to the Bureau of Prisons.
The Clerk of the Court shall serve this writ forthwith on the Marshal Service and on the warden or other designate of the Bureau of Prisons at the institution where defendant is presently housed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
