IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 14, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CECILIO MENDEZ-PRIETO, AND JACOB DANIEL COBB, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Kimberly J. Mueller
REQUEST FOR CONTINUED RELEASE PENDING SENTENCING; ORDER
Date: June 20, 2012 Time: 9:00a.m.
JACOB COBB, by his counsel, hereby requests that the court enter an order continuing his release status pending further proceedings in this case, and further says in support of that request as follows:
1. Counsel for Mr. Cobb mis-spoke in court this morning when he advised that Mr. Cobb had not been subject to pretrial conditions when he was released. See CR 26 (release order stating conditions).
2. After court Mr. Cobb and counsel met with Pretrial Services Officer Darryl Walker and provided updated information to him. At that time Mr. Walker advised that drug testing and weekly telephone reporting appeared to him to be appropriate and adequate additional conditions of his release. Mr. Walker authorized counsel to so state to the court in this submission.
3. The court is advised that Mr. Cobb is not engaged in any cooperating activity.
4. Counsel for Mr. Cobb conferred with government counsel and apprised him of defense counsel's misstatement in court regarding Mr. Cobb's release conditions as well as the results of the meeting with the Pretrial Services Officer. Government counsel has also been apprised of the contents of this submission. On that basis government counsel has authorized me to advise the court that the government does not desire to be heard further on the question of continued release, and submits the matter to the judgment of the court.
On that basis and subject to the concurrence of pretrial services and subject to such further conditions, if any, that they might deem appropriate, the court is requested to order that Mr. Cobb be continued on release pending further proceedings in the case.
Dated: March 19, 2012 /s/ Jeffrey L. Staniels JEFFREY L. STANIELS Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant JACOB DANIEL COBB
Based on the representations of counsel set forth above this request for continued release pending further proceedings is hereby GRANTED.
The Pretrial Services Office shall advise the court and parties of such added or modified conditions of release as it deems appropriate. Absent opposition filed before the end of business on Friday June 15, 2012, any added or modified conditions will become effective at that time and the hearing now scheduled for June 20, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. is vacated.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
