UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
CHARLES EDWARD MOSS, JR., Defendant.
MELINDA HAAG (CABN 132612), United States Attorney, J. DOUGLAS WILSON (DCBN 412811), Chief, Criminal Division, ALEXANDRA P. SUMMER (CABN 266485), Assistant United States Attorney, San Francisco, California, Attorneys for United States of America.
[PROPOSED] MODIFIED ORDER OF DETENTION PENDING TRIAL
DONNA M. RYU, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant Charles Edward Moss, Jr., is charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of cocaine base in the form of "crack" within 1, 000 feet of a school, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a)(1) and 860(a).
The government moved for the defendant's detention pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142, and requested a detention hearing, as permitted by 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f). Given the nature of the crime charged, there is a rebuttable presumption that no conditions or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant as required and the safety of any other person and the community. See 18 U.S.C. § 3142(e)(3)(A). On December 19, 2013, following a hearing pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f), and considering the Pretrial Services bail study and oral proffers of counsel as reflected on the record, and the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3142(g), the Court ordered the defendant detained, as no condition or combination of conditions in 18 U.S.C. § 3142(c) will reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant as required and the safety of any other person and the community.
Specifically, the presumption pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(e)(3)(A) had not been rebutted by the defendant. The Court noted that the defendant's criminal history as reflected in the Pretrial Services bail study and summarized by the government at the hearing demonstrates that the defendant would be a danger to the community if released. The charged conduct and other recent activity by the defendant proffered by the government are consistent with that history. Therefore, the defendant is ordered detained as no condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the appearance of defendant as required and the safety of any other person and the community.
The defendant may request a further detention hearing should his circumstances change at any future time. See 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f).
The defendant is committed to the custody of the Attorney General or a designated representative for confinement in a corrections facility separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or held in custody pending appeal. 18 U.S.C. § 3142(i)(2). The defendant must be afforded a reasonable opportunity to consult privately with counsel. 18 U.S.C. § 3142(i)(3). On order of a court of the United States or on request of an attorney for the government, the person in charge of the corrections facility must deliver the defendant to the United States Marshal for court appearances. 18 U.S.C. § 3142(i)(4).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
