DEFENDANT'S UNOPPOSED MOTION TO MODIFY CONDITIONS OF SUPERVISED RELEASE PURSUANT TO USC
Mr. Beagle pled guilty to 18 USC §1344, Bank Fraud, and 18 USC §1029(a)(2), Access Device Fraud, in 2008. He was sentenced to 37 months in prison to be followed by 60 months of supervised release. Mr. Beagle owes approximately $85,000 in Restitution. Mr. Beagle was released from custody at the end of last year and lives in Oregon with his family. He is supervised by U.S. Probation in Eugene, Oregon although jurisdiction remains with this Court.
Mr. Beagle began looking for work immediately upon release. After a long job search he was finally offered a sales position with a Mazda dealership in Eugene. He informed his probation officer of this job offer and she spoke with the General Manager of the dealership.
Unfortunately, however, her supervisor would not let her approve of this employment for Mr. Beagle.
The general manager, Mr. Fadi Habib, wrote a letter to probation explaining the process in place at the dealership that would alleviate any risk to their customers. Essentially the customer enters their financial information into a computer terminal and that information is directly transmitted to the Sales Manager for credit approval. The information would not flow through Mr. Beagle.
This information was given to US Probation here and in Eugene. The probation officer in Sacramento spoke with the supervisor in Eugene to urge him to approve this employment given the large restitution order and the procedures in place to protect the general public. The probation officer would not, however, approve of this employment without a court order.*fn1
THE DEFENDANT'S REQUESTED MODIFICATION OF SUPERVISION
18 USC § 3583(e) and Federal Criminal Rule of Procedure 32.1(c) allow this Court to modify conditions of supervision without a hearing where the modification is favorable to the defendant, the defendant waives hearing and if the government has received notice of the modification and had an opportunity to object. This case meets those criteria.
Accordingly, the defendant hereby requests that his terms and conditions of supervised release be modified as to allow him to work as a "sales professional" at the Mazda Dealership in Eugene, Oregon. Furthermore, the defendant requests that this Court order Jurisdiction over this case to remain with the Eastern District of California.
Defense counsel undersigned has contacted the U.S. Attorney on this case, Mr. Lapham. Mr. Lapham has no opposition to these two requests.
