IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 29, 2008
SAMUEL H. JUMPER, PETITIONER/DEFENDANT,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT/PLAINTIFF.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, District Judge
A jury convicted Petitioner on two counts involving the distribution of marijuana. He was sentenced to 188 months imprisonment, five years supervised release, a fine of $1000, and a special assessment of $200. On appeal, Petitioner challenged the Court's denial of his motion to exclude portions of his videotaped testimony, but his conviction was affirmed. United States v. Jumper, 497 F.3d 699 (7th Cir. 2007). Subsequently, Petitioner filed the instant motion under 28 U.S.C. § 2255. In this motion, he raises three instances of ineffective assistance of counsel: (1) failure to object to the computation of his criminal history, (2) failure to present his "leadership" argument on appeal, and (3) failure to provide him with discovery materials.
The Court ORDERS the Government to file a response to Petitioner's motion within THIRTY (30) DAYS of the date of this Order. The Government shall, as part of its response, attach all relevant portions of the record.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
G. Patrick Murphy United States District Judge
