United States of America v. Juan Pablo Velazquez

April 1, 2011

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
JUAN PABLO VELAZQUEZ, DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge

ORDER

The Court is in receipt of Defendant Juan Pablo-Velazquez's Request for an Emergency Interruption of Sentence (ECF No. 304). District Courts simply do not have the power to "suspend the imposition of a sentence." United States v. Murillo, 548 F.3d 1256, 1257 (9th Cir. 2008). Under United States Code, the Bureau of Prisons alone has authority to determine whether a prisoner may be released under such circumstances. See 18 U.S.C. § 3622. Therefore, Defendant's request (ECF No. 304) is DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
