The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Morrison C. England, Jr.
MOTION TO DELAY MS. WARD'S SELF-SURRENDER DATE FROM JULY 14, 2011 TO SEPTEMBER 1, 2011
The Defendant, Necole Ward, by her attorney, Bruce Locke, moves the Court to delay her self-surrender date from July 14, 2011 to September 1, 2011. The reason for the request to delay the surrender date is that Ms. Ward has a one-year old infant and her only daycare while she is incarcerated is her mother-in-law. That mother-in-law is having surgery for a hysterectomy on July 14, 2011 and she will need time to recover from that surgery before she will be able to care for the one-year old. Undersigned counsel believes that if the defendant had known about the surgery at the time of her sentencing, the Court would have granted the defendant the additional time to self-surrender. This is not a Motion made just to delay the serving of the sentence.
Undersigned counsel has requested that the government join in this Motion but the government has declined to join and will oppose the Motion. A propose order is submitted herewith.
