In case 10-97 JAM, defendant SHANEMA McQUEEN, flew from South Carolina to Sacramento to make her initial appearance before the magistrate on April 15, 2010. She borrowed money from friends and relatives to come up with enough money to make the cross-country flight. She was unable to borrow enough money to fly to Sacramento for our May 4, 2010, initial appearance in District Court. The court authorized payment for a round-trip airline ticket for Ms. McQueen to attend our June 8, 2010, court appearance. Ms. McQueen is still unable to afford to fly to Sacramento and back to her home in South Carolina for our sentencing hearing scheduled for October 25, 2011.
Application is hereby made for an Order for Transportation and subsistence allowance for defendant SHANEMA McQUEEN to travel round-trip from her home in South Carolina, to Sacramento, California for the purpose of meeting with undersigned counsel and attending the October 25, 2011, sentencing hearing.
