United States District Court, D. Nebraska
February 6, 2014
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
GARY REIBERT, Defendant.
THOMAS D. THALKEN, Magistrate Judge.
This matter is before the court on the motion of defendant Gary Reibert (Reibert) for release (Filing No. 177). The court considered the motion on January 24, 2014, following the Rule 17.1 conference. Reibert was represented by John P. Rion via telephone hook-up and by Matthew J. Barbato in person. The United States was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael P. Norris. The court received Exhibit 1, an FBI forensic report of Reibert's computer, a letter from Dr. Michael A. Trygstad, D.O., and a memorandum in support of the motion by Mr. Rion. The court directed Pretrial Services to investigate the proposal. The Pretrial Services report was filed on February 5, 2014 (Filing No. 183 - Sealed). A copy of the report was provided to both counsel.
Apart from the unfortunate illness of Reibert's mother-in-law, there has been no change of circumstances to warrant Reibert's release following Reibert's detention after his detention hearing in the Southern District of Ohio and the denial of his appeal by Judge Bataillon. Neither the Pretrial Services officer in the Southern District of Ohio nor the Pretrial Services officer in the District of Nebraska recommend release.
Reibert's motion for release (Filing No. 177) is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
