UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
LEE O. PARKER, Defendant.
THOMAS D. THALKEN, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant Lee O. Parker (Parker) appeared before the court on December 20, 2013, on the Amended Petition for Warrant or Summons for Offender Under Supervision (Petition) (Filing No. 89). Parker was represented by Assistant Federal Public Defender Richard H. McWilliams and the United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas R. Semisch. Through his counsel, Parker waived his right to a probable cause hearing on the Petition pursuant to Fed. R. Crim. P. 32.1(a)(1). I find that the Petition alleges probable cause and Parker should be held to answer for a final dispositional hearing before Senior Judge Lyle E. Strom.
The government moved for detention. Through counsel, Parker declined to present any evidence or request a hearing on the issue of detention. Since it is Parker'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 to the community, the court finds Parker has failed to carry his burden and that Parker 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 Lyle E. Strom in Courtroom No. 5, Third Floor, Roman L. Hruska U.S. Courthouse, 111 South 18th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska, at 9:00 a.m. on February 5, 2014. Defendant must be present in person.
2. Defendant Lee O. Parker is committed to the custody of the Attorney General or his designated representative for confinement in a correctional facility;
3. 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.
