I found Waldo and I’m hoping Sally James and NAAS will stop by with comments on the Motion for Continuation filed in USA v Perdigao.
Now comes David L. Arena, Senior United States Probation Officer, and moves the Court for an order continuing the sentence in the above-matter which is currently set for February 11, 2009, because additional time is needed to prepare a pre-sentence report. Neither defense counselor, Charles Griffin, nor Assistant United States Attorney, James Mann, have any objections to a brief continuance. Therefore the probation officer moves the Court to continue the sentencing date in this case for approximately 30 days.
Somehow, I don’t think Sop will be surprised by the delay or the reminder in this Notice of Continuation.
Take Notice that this criminal case has been set for SENTENCING onWEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 2009, at 2:00 PM, before JUDGE ELDON E. FALLON, Courtroom C-468, 500 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.
Important: Counsel are hereby notified that any request for the imposition of a Non-Guideline Sentence must comply with the deadlines established in LCrR 32.1.1E regarding the submission of motions or letters requesting departures from the Sentencing Guidelines.
Me? Well, to be honest, I haven’t been anything but surprised by either USA v Perdigao or Perdigao v Adams & Reese – other than being beyond surprised at this statement in his plea agreement after looking at all those parking tickets:
The government believes that the defendant cannot give useful and truthful cooperation in this matter, therefore, the government will decide if it is necessary that the defendant agree to submit to interviews whenever and wherever requested by law enforcement authorities.
Judge Fallon granted the Motion, by the way.
