MOTION FOR MODIFICATION OF CONDITIONS OF PROBATION; ORDER
Defendant, Mr. Sukhdeep Singh, was sentenced in February 2010 to 36 months probation with conditions crafted to assist Mr. Singh with his alcohol addiction. Since the date of his sentencing, Mr. Singh had been residing with his sister and brother-in-law. Unfortunately, due to a family dispute, Mr. Singh has been asked to leave this residence, and he is now living at the home of a friend. Given Mr. Singh's continued battles with his addiction, however, Mr. Singh and his Probation Officer, Ms. Marlene DeOrian, do not believe that this living arrangement is in the best interest of Mr. Singh's continued recovery. After discussing his options with Ms. DeOrian, the two agreed that he would benefit from ninety days in the recovery residences at Turning Point, and Ms. DeOrian has secured a bed there for Mr. Singh. Before Mr. Singh can move to Turning Point, however, an order is needed from this Court modifying the conditions of his probation so as to include a ninety-day term at Turning Point.
Accordingly, Mr. Singh respectfully moves this Court for such an order. Counsel for Mr. Singh has for several days attempted to contact counsel for the government, but has not received a response to his calls and emails. It is therefore unknown whether the government opposes this motion, which has the full support of Mr. Singh and Ms. DeOrian. Because of Mr. Singh's tenuous living arrangement, it is respectfully requested that the Court consider and rule on this Motion at its earliest possible convenience.

The conditions of Defendant's probation are hereby modified such that, at Probation's discretion, Mr. Singh shall spend ninety days at the residential re-entry center Turning Point. All other prior terms and conditions of probation, not in conflict, shall remain in full force and effect pending further order of the Court.
