IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 19, 2007
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ARTHUR LEE JONES, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Defendant Arthur Lee Jones has filed a Motion for Reduction of Sentence Pursuant to the Provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2) (Doc. 267). As defendant Jones, who is currently serving a federal prison sentence, is found to be financially unable to obtain counsel, is in need of counsel and is entitled to the appointment to counsel, the Court hereby APPOINTS the United States Federal Public Defender for the Southern District of Illinois to serve as representative counsel for Defendant in this matter.
Subsequent to this appointment, the matter is STAYED until March 3, 2008, which is the effective date for the retroactive application of the amendment to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines pertaining to crack cocaine offenses. Therefore,
Defendant's Motion to Amend and Supplement Pleading (Doc. 269) will remain pending until the stay is lifted, at which time, it will be ruled upon by the Court. Furthermore, Administrative Order 102, included herewith, is incorporated by reference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
