United States v. Lewis

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


February 23, 2006

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
JESSE LEWIS, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, Chief District Judge

ORDER

This matter is before the Court on Defendant Jesse Lewis's amended motion to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis (Doc. 265). On March 23, and April 8, 2005, Magistrate Judge Proud found that Defendant was financially unable to afford counsel and appointed counsel to represent him (see Docs. 12, 47, 48). Thereafter, Defendant retained counsel to represent him through trial and at the sentencing hearing. Retained counsel has filed a notice of appeal on Defendant's behalf, as well as the current motion for pauper status on appeal.

Because Defendant was previously determined to be financially unable to obtain an adequate defense (see Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3)), the Court finds that he should be allowed to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis. Accordingly, the instant motion (Doc. 265) is GRANTED. The cost of preparation of the transcript shall be paid under the Criminal Justice Act. Defendant's earlier-filed motions to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis (Docs. 257, 258) are MOOT.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

G. PATRICK MURPHY Chief United States District Judge
