U.S. v. COCHRAN

United States District Court, S.D. Illinois


May 4, 2005.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
PIERRE COCHRAN, Defendant.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: DAVID HERNDON, District Judge

ORDER

Pending before the Court are Defendant Cochran's motion to modify conditions of release (Doc. 19). Specifically, Cochran moves the Court to lift his 6:00 p.m. curfew. The Government does not oppose modifying the curfew from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The Defendant has had some compliance problems during pretrial release. While the Defendant enjoys the presumption of innocence, he also suffers the requirement of abiding by the reasonable restrictions placed on him by the Magistrate Judge which modify only slightly his liberty pending trial in this case. Because of the Defendant's compliance problems and the questionable issues which are suggested by his own motion, of which the Court was already alerted by the probation officer, the Court has considerable concerns about making less restrictive the environment in which the Defendant is allowed to operate. The Court must be mindful of the protection of the community. Should the charges here prove to be true, Defendant was a public servant who violated a serious public trust. Considering the positions of both sides, the Court finds the Government's position reasonable.

  Therefore, the Court being fully advised in the matter GRANTS in part Cochran's motion. The Court MODIFIES the conditions of Cochran's release to reflect that his curfew is changed to 10:00 p.m. All other conditions of his release remain the same.

  IT IS SO ORDERED.
