UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
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 KHONESAY RACHSINGHARN
DEFENDANT'S WAIVER OF PERSONAL APPEARANCE
The undersigned defendant Khonesay Rachsingharn, 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. Rachsingharn makes this request because he resides in San Jacinto, California 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. Rachsingharn represents that Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen A. Servatius does not oppose this waiver of appearance.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
