UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
September 14, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ERIC HAAS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Roslynn R. Mauskopf, United States District Judge.
On May 15, 2012, defendant Eric Haas was sentenced to two concurrent terms of five years followed by ten years of supervised release for the possession and distribution of child pornography. (Doc. No. 46.) On June 4, 2012, judgment was entered. (Doc. No. 48.) The Court allowed defendant to remain at liberty and ordered that defendant surrender himself by August 1, 2012 directly to the facility designed the Bureau of Prisons in order to begin serving his sentence. (Id.)
In an electronic order dated July 19, 2012, this Court granted defendant's r request to extend his date of surrender to September 17, 2012. (See Doc. No. 51 and Docket Entry of 7/19/2012.) On September 6, 2012, defendant Haas requested a second extension of his surrender date until November 19, 2012 to assist with child care issues while his mother-in-law undergoes a medical procedure. (Doc. No. 53.)
Defendant's application to extend his surrender date is GRANTED IN
PART. Defendant shall surrender to the facility designated by the
Bureau of Prisons before 2:00 p.m. on October 15, 2012.*fn1
No further extensions will be granted absent extraordinary
Defendant's child care issues are well-known to the Court from information provided for sentencing. This extension will accord defendant and his family more than ample time to make all necessary care arrangements, including those that may temporarily be required due to the limited unavailability of defendant's mother in law.
Counsel for defendant is directed to notify defendant of the new surrender date, and shall file a letter with the Court indicating that he has so done. The Clerk of Court shall send a copy of this Order to the United States Marshals Service.
