IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 23, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ROBERT C. BROWN,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John A. Mendez U.S. District Court Judge
DEFENSE REQUEST FOR PERMISSION TO
VIEW REDACTED RESTITUTION
In preparation for sentencing in this matter, undersigned counsel visited the U.S. Probation Office to review victim responses regarding restitution in this case. In the course of examining these responses for accuracy, counsel reviewed the statements by many victims, and counsel believes it would assist in the education and rehabilitation of Mr. Brown for him to review these responses personally as well.
The Probation Office has made redacted copies of the responses that protect against disclosure of any personal information and agreed to allow Mr. Brown to review the redacted responses at the Probation office. Counsel for the United States has been contacted and has no objection to this procedure. However, the Probation Office requests an order from this court permitting such a procedure to occur.
Defendant therefore requests that this court issue the attached proposed order.
Dated: March 22, 2012
/s/ Daniel J. Broderick
DANIEL J. BRODERICK Federal Defender Attorney for ROBERT C. BROWN, JR. ----------Pursuant to Defendant ROBERT BROWN'S unopposed request to review restitution reports from the victims of his offense, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the United States Probation Office shall make available appropriately redacted copies of these reports for review by Mr. Brown in its office. A copy of this order shall be served upon United States Probation Officer Ronnie Preap.
