UNITED STATES'S REQUEST TO CONTINUE RESTITUTION HEARING; ORDER THEREON Date: August 2, 2012
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Place: Courtroom 7, 14th Floor
The United hereby requests that the restitution hearing set for August 2, 2012 be continued to August 23, 2012.
On October 4, 2012, defendant Michael Garcia pled guilty to two counts in the information charging him with violations of 18 U.S.C. §1029 -- Fraud in Connection with Access Device, and 18 U.S.C. § 1030 -- Fraud in Connection with Computers. On May 31, 2012, this Court sentenced defendant to fifty-seven months imprisonment, thirty-six months supervised release, and to pay a special assessment in the amount of $200. The Court further stated that restitution would be determined at a later date based on the recommendation received by the Probation Office, and set the date for any restitution hearing for August 2, 2012.
The undersigned counsel for the United States has been in contact with the assigned Probation Officer, and has been informed that she is presently unavailable and that she has not had an opportunity to finalize her report on the recommended amount of restitution in this case. Accordingly, because there is not yet a restitution recommendation by the Probation Office, a hearing on restitution would be premature. Counsel for the United States made inquiries to counsel for defendant about his consent or objection to continuing the date for the restitution hearing, but has not received any response to these inquiries as of the date of this filing. Accordingly, for the reasons stated above, the United States respectfully requests that the date for the restitution hearing be continued to August 23, 2012.
For the reasons stated above, and for good cause showing, the Court GRANTS the United States's request. The restitution hearing set for August 2, 2012 is CONTINUED to August 23, 2012 at 9:00 a.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
