IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 7, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOEL BLANFORD DEFENDANT.
UNITED STATES' MOTION TO DISMISS MONEY LAUNDERING CONSPIRACY COUNT; [PROPOSED] ORDER MOTION
Plaintiff, the United States of America, by and through its undersigned attorneys, hereby moves pursuant to Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 48(a), to dismiss count seven of the indictment filed on June 12, 2008, charging defendant Joel Blanford with participating in a money laundering conspiracy. Based on an intervening change in the law, the government believes, as a discretionary matter, that continued prosecution of defendant Joel Blanford on that specific charge is no longer warranted.
This motion does have any effect on counts one through six of the indictment, charging defendant Joel Blanford with mail fraud.
Date: June 4, 2010
