SUPPLEMENTAL REQUEST TO PHONE MEXICO AND ATTACHED ORDER
Roberto Rodriguez hereby requests that he be allowed to telephone his family in Mexico (Union de Tula, Jalisco, Mexico) from the Sacramento County Jail at his own expense.*fn1 This Court previously approved a request on behalf of Mr. Rodriguez to allow Mr. Rodriguez a single phone call to his family in Mexico. Mr. Rodriguez was provided with a pre-paid "phone card" and allowed to call his family in Mexico. Jail staff informed Mr. Rodriguez they are willing to allow Mr. Rodriguez future calls of an identical nature, assuming the jail does not incur any expense for the calls and the Court allows him (Mr. Rodriguez) to make such calls.
Mr. Rodriguez has sufficient funds remaining on his pre-paid calling card to make several additional calls to his wife and children in Mexico. Mr. Rodriguez requests he be allowed to call his family in Mexico (his wife and two children) every other week, at the Sacramento Main Jail's convenience (beginning, if possible, the week of August 9, 2010).
Mr. Rodriguez's wife (Monica) and two small children (Aristani-age 5 and Ayleen-age 2) live in Mexico and have not been able to visit him while he has been in custody. (Mr. Rodriguez has been in custody since June 10, 2009.) Mr. Rodriguez' matter is next on the calendar on September 14, 2010.
Mr. Rodriguez hereby requests this court order the Sacramento County jail to grant him access to a telephone on which he can place calls using an international calling card to the home of his wife, Monica Gonzalez, and children, at telephone number: 011-316-37-12773, and that Mr. Rodriguez be allowed to speak with his wife and children for at least twenty minutes, or for such longer time as the Sacramento County Sheriff may allow. Mr. Rodriguez further requests he be allowed to call his family in Mexico (his wife and two children) every other week, at the Sacramento Main Jail's convenience (beginning, if possible, the week of August 9, 2010). This request is contingent upon the defendant's use of an international calling card which he will purchase so that no long distant telephone costs are incurred by the County of Sacramento.
Mr. Rodriguez's x-reference number of 4549904 and he is housed at 6W Pod 1 Cell 1A.
