UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JAMES E. JOHNSTON,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, JR United States District Judge
APPLICATION FOR IN CAMERA REVIEW OF GOVERNMENT TRIAL EXHIBITS IN SUPPORT OF GOVERNMENT'S SENTENCING
MEMORADUM AND ORDER
The United States of America, by and through the undersigned attorney, hereby applies to the Court for in camera review of the trial exhibits in support of the Government's Sentencing Memorandum. The trial exhibits are being submitted to the Court for in camera review given their sensitive nature and the fact that the sentencing court did not hear the trial in this case. The material is relevant evidence in support of the arguments advanced in the Government's Formal Objections and Sentencing Memorandum. In camera review of the exhibits is necessary due to the fact that the materials contain visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Upon granting of this application, the United States will deliver to the Court the trial exhibits. Upon completion of the Court's examination of the trial exhibits, the United States asks that it be returned to the care and custody of the United States Attorney's Office. A copy of the trial exhibits will be maintained in the United States Attorney's file.
Defense counsel was provided a copy of the exhibits prior to trial.
