UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
ROBERT J. COVINGTON, Defendant.
F. A. GOSSETT, III, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant Robert J. Covington appeared before the court on December 4, 2013 on a Petition for Offender Under Supervision . The defendant was represented by Assistant Federal Public Defender Jeffrey L. Thomas, and the United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meredith B. Tyrakoski. Through his counsel, the defendant waived his right to a probable cause hearing on the Petition for Offender Under Supervision  pursuant to Fed. R. Crim. P. 32.1(a)(1). The government moved for detention. A detention hearing was held on December 10, 2013. Since it is the defendant's burden under 18 U.S.C. § 3143 to establish by clear and convincing evidence that he is neither a flight risk nor a danger, the court finds the defendant has failed to carry his burden and that he should be detained pending a dispositional hearing before Senior Judge Strom.
IT IS ORDERED:
1. A final dispositional hearing will be held before Senior Judge Strom in Courtroom No. 5, Third Floor, Roman L. Hruska Federal Courthouse, 111 South 18th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska, on January 16, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. Defendant must be present in person.
2 The defendant, Robert J. Covington, is committed to the custody of the Attorney General or his designated representative for confinement in a correctional facility;
3. The defendant shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity for private consultation with defense counsel; and
4. Upon order of a United States court or upon request of an attorney for the government, the person in charge of the corrections facility shall deliver defendant to the United States Marshal for the purpose of an appearance in connection with a court proceeding.
