IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 19, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
RALPH CLAY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows U.S. Magistrate Judge
Motion to Dismiss Arrest Warrant for Ralph Clay
Plaintiff United States of America, by and through its undersigned counsel moves, pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48, to dismiss the complaint and arrest warrant in the above-captioned action. On June 17, 2003, this Court issued a no bail bench warrant for Ralph Clay based on a complaint that set forth the fact that the federal government was assisting the state in apprehending the defendant. At the time, the government believed that the defendant's whereabouts were known and that he could be brought to justice expeditiously. Unfortunately, the arrest did not take place as planned. Because there is no more specific information of the defendant's whereabouts in another jurisdiction, the government moves to dismiss the arrest warrant.
DATED: May 15, 2009
LAWRENCE G. BROWN Acting United States Attorney
By: Kyle F. Reardon KYLE F. REARDON Assistant U.S. Attorney
Based on the motion of the government, and GOOD CAUSE APPEARING THEREFORE, the Court hereby orders that the bench warrant for Ralph Clay, issued for failure to comply with a court ordered subpoena, be and is hereby dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
