UNOPPOSED MOTION TO CONTINUE DISCLOSURE OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL PSR AND THE BRIEFING SCHEDULE AND ORDER
COMES NOW Daniel G. Bogden, United States Attorney, and PETER S. LEVITT, Assistant United States Attorney, counsel for the United States of America, and files this unopposed motion to continue the briefing schedule set forth in the Court's order of April 11, 2013. District Court Docket Number ("DC No.") 88.
Defense counsel Shari L. Kaufman, Assistant Federal Defender, advises there is no opposition to the contents of this motion.
As grounds for this motion, the Government states:
1. On March 2, 2009, this Court (Honorable Edward C. Reed, United States District Judge) sentenced Hammond to 130 months' imprisonment for offenses involving cocaine base ("crack"), under 21 U.S.C. 841(a). DC No. 77 (imposing below-guidelines sentence).
2. Hammond's projected release date is March 11, 2017. www.bob.gov http://www.bop.gov.
3. On November 1, 2011, Amendment 750 to the Sentencing Guidelines became retroactively effective. Amendment 750 reduces the base offense level for certain crimes involving crack under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). See 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) ("[I]n the case of a defendant who has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment based on a sentencing range that has subsequently been lowered by the Sentencing Commission . . . upon motion of the defendant . . . the court may reduce the term of imprisonment, after considering the factors set forth in section 3553(a) to the extent that they are applicable, if such a reduction is consistent withapplicable policy statements issued by the Sentencing Commission.") (emphasis added).
4. On October 9, 2012, Hammond filed a pro per motion for a discretionary sentence reduction sentence under Amendment 750 and 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2). DC No. 80. reduction under Amendment 750 and 18 U.S.C. 3582(c)(2). DC No. 80.
5. On October 12, 2012, this case was assigned to the Honorable Gloria M. Navarro, United States District Judge, for further disposition. DC No. 81.
6. On April 11, 2013, this Court ordered the Probation Office to prepare a Supplemental Presentence Report ("S-PSR") by April 30, 2013. DC No. 88. This Court also set a status conference for July 1, 2013, and set forth a briefing schedule for disposition of Hammond's motion under Section 3582(c)(2), in the event the parties were unable to reach a resolution.
7. On April 26, 2013, the Probation Officer advised the undersigned that, because Hammond was currently in transit, she (the Probation Officer) could not obtain his in-prison Progress Reports and, therefore, could not prepare a complete S-PSR.
8. The undersigned thereafter spoke to Hammond's attorney, who agreed that it is in the best interests of her client to afford the Probation Officer additional time to obtain Hammond's in-prison Progress Report and thereafter prepare the S-PSR.
9. The parties therefore request that this Court enter an Order that: (a) vacates DC No. 88; (b) orders that the S-PSR be filed by May 15, 2013; (c) orders that the briefing schedule be correspondingly adjusted to reflect the two-week continuance; and (d) resets the status conference to July 15, 2013, or to a date that is convenient for this Court.
10. Denial of this request could result in a miscarriage of justice, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
11. This is the first request for continuance herein. DATED this 29th day of April, 2013.
