IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 9, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CAROLYN JEAN JONES,
WAIVER OF DEFENDANT'S PERSONAL PRESENCE AT PRETRIAL PROCEEDINGS; ORDER THEREON
Pursuant to F. R. Crim. P. 43(b)(2) and (3), Defendant, CAROLYN JEAN JONES, having been advised of her right to be present at all stages of the proceedings, hereby requests that this Court proceed in her absence on every occasion that the Court may permit, pursuant to this waiver. Defendant agrees that her interests shall be represented at all times by the presence of her attorney, the Office of the Federal Defender for the Eastern District of California, the same as if Defendant were personally present, and requests that this Court allow his attorney-in-fact to represent her interests at all times. Defendant further agrees that notice to Defendant's attorney that Defendant's presence is required will be deemed notice to Defendant of the requirement of her appearance at said time and place.
Defendant makes this request because the time, distance and expense involved in traveling to Fresno for court appearances is a financial and personal hardship on her. Defendant wishes to limit the number of personal court appearances and minimize the time and expense of travel to court.
This request is made pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 43(b)(3).
Dated: February 8 , 2011 /s/ Carolyn Jean Jones CAROLYN JEAN JONES [original signature in attorney's file] Dated: February 8 , 2011 /s/ Jeremy S. Kroger JEREMY S. KROGER Assistant Federal Defender Counsel for Defendant

IT IS SO ORDERED.
