IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
May 4, 2007
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
LEE MARLIN FIELDING, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Defendant has requested that this Court allow him to marry his fiancé, Melissa Malloy. The Court feels the U. S. Marshall Service and the agency currently housing the Defendant are in the best position to evaluate the security risks attendant to this type of visit in relation to this Defendant. Likewise, the agency currently housing the Defendant knows better than this Court the physical limitations which characterize its facility, which may or may not permit a marriage.
Accordingly, the Court GRANTS Defendant's motion contingent upon the U. S. Marshall's Service and the agency currently housing Defendant finding, in the reasonable exercise of their discretion, that a marriage can be physically accommodated without an unreasonable security risk.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
