The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
APPLICATION FOR TRANSPORTATION ORDER; ORDER FOR TRANSPORTATION PURSUANT TO 18 U.S.C. 4285
In this matter, defendant Eileen Knight is scheduled for a hearing on June 7th, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. for an initial appearance before the Honorable Morrison C. England, Jr.. Ms. Knight initially appeared before the United States District Court of the Central District of California on the same indictment that is before this Court. The case was transferred to the Eastern District of California, and Ms. Knight's attorney, Pedro V. Castillo, DFPD, requested that the Magistrate Judge order that the United States Marshal's Office provide Ms. Knight with non-custodial transportation to appear before this Court, and the Magistrate Judge agreed. However, a request for transportation back to Los Angeles, after the hearing before this Court on June 7th, has not been established. Ms. Knight is indigent.
Application is hereby made for an Order for Transportation and subsistence for defendant Eileen Knight to enable her to return to Los Angeles after her hearing in the above-referenced matter scheduled for June 7th, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. before the Honorable Morrison C. England, Jr.
Ms. Knight has advised counsel that she is unable to afford travel and is requesting that transportation be arranged for her one-way travel from Sacramento, California to Los Angeles on June 7, 2012.
Wherefore, in the interests of justice, the Court is requested to arrange for Ms. Knight's means of non-custodial transportation or furnish the fare for such transportation from where her appearance is required; and, in addition, to direct the United States Marshal to furnish Ms. Knight with an amount of money for subsistence expenses, not to exceed the amount authorized as a per diem allowance for travel under Section 5702(a) of Title 5, United States Code, and pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Section 4285.
