UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
DELMONT WILLIAMS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Richard J. Arcara Chief Judge United States District Court
ORDER OF CONDITIONAL RELEASE
The Court has received and reviewed the Certificate of Improved Mental Condition and Request for Conditional Release from Hospitalization relating to the defendant Delmont Williams, from Warden David L. Winn of Federal Medical Center at Devens, the Letter of Acceptance of Supervision from the United States Probation Office, Western District of New York, the letter of Acceptance into residential program, the Risk Assessment Panel Report of May 17, 2005, and the letter of Warden Winn dated April 5, 2006, setting forth a treatment program and advising that the defendant Delmont Williams has agreed to the treatment program and the conditions of release. Counsel for the Government, Kathleen Mehltretter, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and counsel for the defendant, Assistant Federal Public Defender John Humann, have also received and reviewed the same items. There is no objection from either party to the entry of this order.
After due consideration, pursuant to Title 18, U.S.C. Section 4243 (f), the Court finds that the defendant, Delmont Williams, has recovered from his mental disease or defect to such an extent that his conditional release under a prescribed regimen of medical, psychiatric and psychological care and treatment will no longer create a substantial risk of bodily injury to another person or serious damage to property of another. The Court further finds that it is appropriate that the conditional release shall include a prescribed regimen of medical, psychiatric and psychological care and treatment as prepared by the Bureau of Prisons and by the United States Probation Office and therefore, it is hereby
ORDERED, that the defendant Delmont Williams is to be conditionally released from the custody of the Bureau of Prisons upon the defendant Delmont Williams' placement at Transitional Services, Inc., 313-317 Amherst Street, Buffalo, New York.
