UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 6, 2011
RE: DONG SONG
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Garland E. Burrell United States District Judge Sacramento, California
PERMISSION TO TRAVEL OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY
The releasee is requesting permission to travel to Qui Xa City, China. He is current with all supervision obligations, and the probation officer recommends approval be granted.
Conviction and Sentencing Date: On September 3, 2010, the offender pled guilty to a violation of 18 USC 4 - Misprision of a Felony. In summary, Dong Song is alleged to have conspired with at least 11 other individuals in running a large marijuana grow operation which involved multiple homes throughout the Sacramento area. Although officials did not believe Dong Song was an intrical part of the marijuana grow itself, he was seen under surveillance entering several of the homes, and thus, knew about the operation.
Sentence imposed: The offender was sentenced to credit for time served, to be followed by 12 months of supervised release.
Dates and Mode of Travel: The offender plans to depart on April 15, 2011, and return on May 15, 2011.
Purpose: To attend his son's wedding and visit family and friends. According to the family, contact has been made with the U.S. Consulate and there are no provisions which would exclude Mr. Song from traveling to China. It does not appear Mr. Song is a flight risk, as he has numerous family members, including immediate family, in the Sacramento area, and he is gainfully employed as an In Home Care worker, where he cares for his elderly parents.
