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 Ms. Africa Hendrix may be extended by two weeks from October 7, 2010 to October 21, 2010 before 2:00 p.m.
On August 27, 2010, Ms. Hendrix was sentenced to six months in custody after pleading guilty to one count of theft of government property. She was given six weeks to turn herself in to the Bureau of Prisons and her surrender date is tomorrow, October 7, 2010. In compliance with the Court's order, Ms. Hendrix has put her affairs in order and, if necessary, is prepared to surrender as ordered by the Court. She requests this brief extension of her surrender date, however, because early Tuesday morning her sister-in-law - with whom Ms. Hendrix is very close - suffered a massive heart attack. The doctors informed the family this morning that she is brain dead and being kept alive only by artificial means. She is expected to pass in the next forty-eight hours.
Ms. Hendrix requests this two-week extension so that she can be there to support her brother and the rest of the family, and so that she can receive their support in return. She also hopes to help with and attend the funeral services, which she anticipates will take place within the next week.
Counsel for Ms. Hendrix contacted the government as soon as he was made aware of Ms. Hendrix's circumstances and was informed this morning that the government does not object to this request.
