IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 2, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
RAY LEE CHESTANG,
BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney PHILIP A. FERRARI Assistant United States Attorney 501 I Street, Suite 10-100 Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 554-2744
ORDER GRANTING REQUEST FOR EXTENSION
The defendant, proceeding pro se, filed a motion to reduce his sentence in light of the Fair Sentencing Act. Docket, # 60. Due to the undersigned's oversight, the government has yet to file a response. On June 29, 2012, this Court ordered the government to file any response by July 9, 2012. Docket, # 63.
Although the defendant may be entitled to relief, it appears there are at least some complicating factors concerning his original sentencing, including among other things his status as a career offender. The government requests a brief continuance so it may retrieve the file from archives and provide the Court with a more fully informed position on the matter. In addition, the undersigned will be out of the office until July 9, 2012. For all of the foregoing reasons, the government respectfully requests that it be given until Wednesday, July 18, 2012, to file any response to the motion.
DATED: June 30, 2012 BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney By: /s/ Philip A. Ferrari PHILIP A. FERRARI Assistant U.S. Attorney
The government shall file any response to the pending motion (Docket, # 60) on or before Wednesday, July 18, 2012.
