IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 23, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL FIELDS, DEFENDANT.
MOTION TO DISMISS NO BAIL DENNIS BENCH WARRANT FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR AS A WITNESS
Plaintiff United States of America, by and through its undersigned counsel, moves to dismiss the arrest warrant in the above-captioned action. On September 1, 2004, during the second day of the trial of Dennis Michael Fields, this Court issued a no bail bench warrant for Joseph Stevens for failure to appear as a witness in the trial. Mr. Stevens was not found before the end of trial and has not been found to date. Given the passage of time and the lack of resources, the government recommends that the arrest warrant be dismissed.
DATED: April 23, 2009
LAWRENCE G. BROWN Acting United States Attorney
LAURA L. FERRIS Assistant U.S. Attorney
ORDER Based on the motion of the government, and GOOD CAUSE APPEARING THEREFORE, the Court hereby orders that the bench warrant for Joseph Stevens, issued for failure to comply with a court ordered subpoena, be and is hereby dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
