IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 26, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
KEIT TRAN, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Hon. Morrison C. England
STIPULATION TO MODIFY CONDITIONS OF RELEASE PURSUANT TO 18 USC §3145(a); ORDER
Keit Tran was released on February 5, 2010 under strict conditions. One of those conditions was that he be placed on "Home Incarceration". This condition has restricted him to his residence at all times except for medical needs, religious services and court appearances. While on release, Mr. Tran has been subject to drug testing and other requirements. There have been no violations of his release conditions.
Mr. Tran has custody of his son on the weekends. He would like to be able to take his son to the movies or a local park during the times he has custody. Mr. Tran would also like to try and find work to help support the family. Based on his behavior since he was released, his pretrial service office believes that a change to Home Detention*fn1 rather than Home Incarceration would be appropriate. His pretrial service officer has consulted with both parties regarding a modification of the release conditions.
The parties have agreed to recommend a modification of the conditions of Mr. Tran's release as indicated on the attached list of conditions prepared by pretrial services. The amendment would only change Home Incarceration to Home Detention and would require Mr. Tran to seek or maintain employment as approved by his pretrial services officer. All other conditions would remain the same. The parties are requesting, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 3145(a) that the Court order this modification and impose the new, amended conditions of release as provided in the attachment to this stipulation.
