WAIVER OF APPEARANCE Date: March 6, 2012 Time: 10:00 a.m.
Ms. Peck currently resides in Hesperia, California, but expects to be transferred out of state for her employment prior to the next court date.

Defendant agrees that her interests shall be represented at all times by the presence of her attorney, the Office of the Federal Defender, the same as if Defendant were personally present. Ms. Peck requests the court to allow her attorney to represent her interests in court on such dates, defendant having specifically given said attorney prior verbal authorization to make such appearance on her behalf. Ms. Peck further hereby requests the court to proceed during every absence which the court may permit pursuant to this waiver, and allow her attorney- in-fact to represent her interests at all times. This request is made pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 43(b)(2).
Additionally, Ms. Peck waives the right to be personally present at the sentencing review hearing, and requests that review hearing be conducted in her absence.
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, IT IS SO ORDERED.
Defendant's appearance may be waived at any and all proceedings until further order, and that Defendant's sentencing review hearing may proceed in Defendant's absence.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
