IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 5, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
WAIVER OF DEFENDANT'S PERSONAL PRESENCE AT PRETRIAL PROCEEDINGS;
Pursuant to F. R. Crim. P. 43(b)(2) and (3), Defendant, Javier Rocha-Vasquez, having been advised of his right to be present at all stages of the proceedings, hereby requests that this Court proceed in his absence on every occasion that the Court may permit, pursuant to this waiver. Defendant agrees that his interests shall be represented at all times by the presence of his attorney, the Office of the Federal Defender for the Eastern District of California, the same as if Defendant were personally present, and requests that this court allow his attorney-in-fact to represent his interests at all times. Defendant further agrees that notice to defendant's attorney that defendant's presence is required will be deemed notice to the defendant of the requirement of his appearance at said time and place.
Defendant makes this request because of the time, distance and expense involved, travel to Fresno for court appearances would be both a financial and personal hardship. Defendant is currently living at home with his parents in Ceres and is on pre-trial supervision with an ankle monitor. He is a full-time student at Modesto Junior College and would have to miss school to attend court. Defendant wishes to limit the number of personal court appearances and minimize the time and expense of travel to court. AUSA Jeremy Jehangiri has no objection to this request.
This request is made pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 43(b)(3).
DATED: 9/23/11 /s/ Javier Rocha Javier Rocha-Vasquez DATED: 9/23/11 /s/ Charles J. Lee CHARLES J. LEE Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant
