Petitioner committed the instant federal offense of Distribution of Cocaine to a Person Under the Age of 21, and Use of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Crime on June 14, 2003. (Exhibit 2, Declaration of Forest Kelly-Attachment One, Judgment in a Criminal Case, case number CR 03-103-LRR.)
On June 16, 2003, Petitioner was arrested by local authorities in Linn County, Iowa, for the state offense of Conspiracy to Commit Burglary (first degree). That arrest also resulted in the instant federal offense of Felon in Possession of a Firearm. (Exhibit 2, Declaration of Forest Kelly.)
On October 27, 2003, Petitioner was transferred to federal custody pursuant to a writ of habeas corpus ad prosequendum. (Id. at Attachment Two, Individual Custody and Detention Report - USM 129.)

The Judgment does not indicate that the sentencing court ordered the sentence to be served concurrently with any sentence yet to be imposed.
