UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT IN AND FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 10, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
HOANG AI LE, ET AL DEFENDANTS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. William B. Shubb
APPLICATION FOR A WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS AD PROSEQUENDUM JOHN THAT LUONG
Comes now the defendant, by his counsel Michael Long, and represents and shows:
1. On December 14, 2007, Hoang Ai Le was convicted by a jury of Counts 8 and 9 of the Indictment.
2. In ECF document 1288, filed on June 12, 2009, Hoang Ai Le was ordered to be sentenced by the Honorable William B. Shubb in case 99-433 at 8:30 a.m. on September 21, 2009.
3. Sometime after June 12, 2009, Mr. Le was removed from EDCA custody at the Sacramento County Jail and re-housed in NDCA custody at the Alameda County Jail for the purpose of a United States v. Ameline re-sentencing Mr. Le in NDCA case 96-94 MHP.
4. Mr. Le's NDCA re-sentencing was continued to October 1, 2009, as his appointed NDCA attorney, George Boisseau, was in trial when Mr. Le had previously been scheduled for his NDCA re-sentencing.
5. In order to secure the presence of the defendant Hoang Ai Le for the September 21, 2009, EDCA sentencing scheduled for himself and his three co-defendants, it is necessary that a Writ of Habeas Corpus ad Prosequendum be issued by this court commanding the Warden, Sheriff or Jailor of Alameda County to produce the defendant in court on said date, and at such other dates as may be necessary in order to procure defendant's presence for other proceedings incident thereto.
6. Assistant United States Attorney William Wong has been informed by undersigned counsel of this request and he objects to Hoang Ai Le's request for a writ. AUSA Wong wants defendant Le to be re-sentenced in the NDCA before Mr. Le is sentenced in the EDCA.
WHEREFORE, petitioner prays for an order directing the issuance of a Writ of Habeas Corpus ad Prosequendum, out of and under the seal of this Court, directed to the Warden, Sheriff or Jailor, commanding him to have and produce the above-named defendant in the United States District Court at said time, and then and there to present the defendant before the Court, and from day to day thereafter as may be necessary, and at the termination of the proceedings against the defendant, to return defendant to the custody of the Warden, Sheriff or Jailor. A proposed Writ of Habeas Corpus Ad Prosequendum has been separately lodged with the district court. Dated: September 10, 2009 Respectfully submitted,
MICHAEL D. LONG Attorney for Defendant HOANG AI LE
Upon reading the filing and foregoing application, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that a Writ of Habeas Corpus ad Prosequendum issue as prayed for herein.
