The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
STIPULATION TO EXTEND SURRENDER DATE; ORDER THEREON
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, through their respective counsel of record herein, that the surrender date of Mr. Samneuk Bunma may be extended from July 6, 2010 to July 27, 2010 before 2:00 p.m.
At sentencing, the court recommended that Mr. Bunma be designated to a California facility, subject to security classification and space availability. The court further ordered that Mr. Bunma surrender on July 6, 2010. Unfortunately for Mr. Bunma, due to overcrowding at appropriate California institutions, the Bureau of Prisons designated him to a facility in Ohio, more than 2,500 miles away from Bunma's home in Fresno. Defense counsel wrote to BOP on June 8, 2010, describing Mr Bunma's circumstances and asking whether it was possible that Mr. Bunma be designated to an institution closer to Cailfornia. On June 24, 2010 the defense was advised that no change in designation was possible.
Mr. Bunma delayed purchasing his airline ticket to Ohio in hopes that he would be designated to a closer facility. Unfortunately, no low cost airfares are now available for Akron, Ohio, the nearest airport, to the designated facility. The defense is requesting an extension of Mr. Bunma's self-surrender date to July 27, 2010, to allow for purchase of a less expensive airline ticket. The government does not object to this request.
