UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
August 13, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
SHANNON FERGUSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Denis R. Hurley, U.S.D.J.
HURLEY, Senior District Judge
The Court is in receipt of defense counsel's letter dated August 12, 2008 asking that defendant's sentence surrender date be adjourned from August 14, 2008 to November 13, 2008.
Defendant was sentenced on August 6, 2007 and directed to surrender on October 26, 2007. Since then, I have granted his requests that the scheduled surrender date be adjourned on four occasions, the last one being in response to counsel's letter of May 1, 2008 asking that the then scheduled surrender date of May 15, 2008 be adjourned to August 14, 2008. At the time, I indicated that no further adjournment beyond the August 14th date would be granted absent extraordinary circumstances. No such circumstances are provided in the August 12th letter.
Accordingly, defendant's application for a fifth adjournment of his surrender date is denied, and he is directed to surrender as scheduled on August 14, 2008.
