The Criminal Complaint against Anthony YOUNG and his co-defendants was filed on April 16, 2012.

Accordingly, the undersigned respectfully moves to dismiss the Criminal Complaint as to defendant Anthony YOUNG in Case No. 2:12-mj-0102 GGH in the interests of justice pursuant to Rule 48(a). The United States further requests that the Court issue an order for YOUNG's immediate release from custody.
