DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender VICTOR M. CHAVEZ, Bar #113752 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant ROBERTO RENTERIA, JR.
DEFENDANT'S WAIVER OF PERSONAL APPEARANCE
The undersigned defendant Roberto Renteria, Jr., having been advised of his right to be present at all stages of the proceedings, including but not limited to presentation of arguments on questions of law, to present evidence in his own defense, to appear at status conferences, hereby waives his right to be present in person in open court upon the hearing of any motion or other proceeding in this cause, including but not limited to status conference, motions hearing, when a continuance is ordered, and requests the court to allow his attorney to represent his interests in court on such dates, defendant having specifically given said attorney prior verbal authorization to make such appearance on his behalf and to request the Court to schedule any and all appropriate hearings relating to Defendant's matter. Defendant further hereby requests the court to proceed during every absence of his which the court may permit pursuant to this waiver, and allow his attorney-in-fact to represent his interests at all times. This request is made pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 43(b)(3).
Mr. Renteria makes this request because he resides in Bakersfield and repeated travel to Fresno is an economic hardship due to the cost of travel and the need to arrange child care for his four children.
Counsel for Mr. Renteria represents that Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy Jehangiri does not oppose this waiver of appearance.
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, it is hereby ordered that Defendant's appearance may be waived.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
