IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 6, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MOTION AND ORDER TO ISSUE BENCH WARRANT FORTHWITH
Today the Defendant failed to appear for sentencing. Counsel stated that she had just then heard from the Defendant's family that the Defendant was in the emergency room at San Leandro Hospital. This information was new as of the time the case was called.
After Court, the Probation Officer was informed that a Northern District Pretrial Services officer had checked with the E.R. at San Leandro Hospital and the Defendant's name was not in their system. The AUSA and the Probation Officer related this information to counsel for the Defendant, who said that she would continue her efforts to contact the Defendant and/or her family.
The United States asks that the Court issue a bench warrant immediately. It is not enough to rely on people's representations over the telephone -- this entire case is about the Defendant and her associates using the telephone to impersonate institutional figures and defraud people.
If the Defendant satisfies the Northern District of California Pretrial Services Officer that this morning she was actually in the E.R. at that hospital, the Court will be promptly notified so that the warrant can be withdrawn.
Respectfully Submitted, BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney DATE: October 6, 2011 By: /s/ Matt Segal MATTHEW D. SEGAL Assistant U.S. Attorney
The warrant requested shall issue, and the stay previously imposed is lifted. SO ORDERED.
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
