MOTION FOR RESTITUTION HEARING
The United States of America hereby moves, with accompanying Declaration of Grant B. Rabenn, this Court for an Order to hold a restitution hearing as to defendant JERRY JAY HER ("Defendant") on or before Friday, August 17, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3664(d)(5).
Respectfully submitted, BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney By: /s/ Grant B. Rabenn GRANT B. RABENN Assistant U.S. Attorney
DECLARATION OF GRANT B. RABENN
1. Title 18, United States Code, Section 3664(d)(5) provides that if a victim's losses are not ascertainable ten days prior to sentencing, the Court shall be informed and the Court shall set a date for final determination of victim's losses not to exceed ninety (90) days after sentencing.
2. Defendant was sentenced to 14 months imprisonment on May 21, 2012 for conspiracy to commit postal crimes. In the factual basis for Defendant's guilty plea, Defendant admitted to breaking into a community mailbox located in Fresno, California on or about September 4, 2011.
3. Approximately one week prior to Defendant's sentencing, the United States Attorney's Office ("USAO") was informed by the United States Postal Service ("USPS") that it intended to file a claim for restitution based on the damage caused by Defendant to the community mailbox. On or about the day that the USAO was informed of USPS's potential restitution claim, USPS also made Probation aware of the claim for restitution. However, because of the deadlines for filing the Pre-Sentence Report ("PSR"), Probation was unable to verify and include this claim for restitution in the PSR.
4. During Defendant's sentencing, I informed the Court of USPS's potential claim for restitution. The Court stated that the United States could move for a restitution hearing within ninety (90) days of Defendant's sentencing. Ninety (90) days from the date of Defendant's sentencing is Sunday, August 19, 2012. As such, the United States requests that the Court hold a restitution hearing as to Defendant on or before Friday, August 17, 2012.
