United States District Court, D. Nevada
L. VALLADARES Federal Public Defender NISHA
BROOKS-WHITTINGTON Assistant Federal Public Defender Attorney
for Richard Lee Trimmer
ORDER FOR CONDITIONAL RELEASE
RICHARD F. BOULWARE, II UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.
December 24, 1998, RICHARD LEE TRIMMER (“Mr.
Trimmer”) was ordered committed to the custody of the
Attorney General for hospitalization and treatment under 18
U.S.C. § 4243. Since that time, Mr. Trimmer has been
granted conditional releases on several occasions, which
ultimately resulted in the revocations of his release.
November 13, 2014, Mr. Trimmer was received for treatment at
the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota. The
Acting Warden of that facility certified by letter dated
October 25, 2017 that Mr. Trimmer no longer suffers from a
mental disease or defect such that his conditional release,
under a prescribed regimen of medical, psychiatric, or
psychological care or treatment, would not create a
substantial risk of bodily injury to another person or
serious damage to the property of another.
Court considered this matter in open court on September 20,
2017, and October 3, 2017 with Mr. Trimmer, case manager
Elizabeth Meyer, Dr. Gabel, and Dr. Massessa attending
telephonically and with counsel for the government and the
defendant. See ECF No. 159.
upon consideration of the record in this case including the
testimony at the various hearings and the advice of Mr.
Trimmer's doctors, the Court now finds it appropriate to
order Mr. Trimmer's conditional release.
IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Mr. Trimmer is granted
conditional release under 18 U.S.C. § 4243(f) to
