UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
April 13, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
CHARLES SCHWAB, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: David G. Larimer United States District Judge
DECISION AND ORDER
Defendant, Charles Schwab ("Schwab"), was convicted after entry of a guilty plea, pursuant to a plea agreement, and was sentenced by this Court on February 20, 2009, principally to a term of 144 months. The Court did allow Schwab to voluntarily surrender, and he has now been notified by the Bureau of Prisons to surrender to the Ft. Dix Federal Correctional Institution on April 14, 2009.
Schwab now moves to stay that surrender date so that he may participate in a hearing concerning restitution, currently scheduled for May 11, 2009. The Government opposes the motion.
As the Government notes, Schwab does have a right to be present at the restitution phase of the case, but he can be transported to the Court from his assigned federal correctional institution.
Therefore, the motion to stay the surrender date is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
