IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 10, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
CARL A COURTRIGHT, III, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court is Defendant's Motion to Continue Sentencing (Doc.107). Defendant filed these Motions pro se despite being represented by counsel. A pro se motion filed while the movant is represented by counsel, may be stricken as improper. See, e.g., United States v. Gwiazdzinski, 141 F.3d 784, 787 (7th Cir. 1998). The record does not show that Defendant's attorney moved to withdraw his representation as required by Local Rule 83.1(f). Accordingly, Defendant's Motion to Continue Sentencing is hereby STRICKEN from the record as being improperly filed, pro se, while Defendant is represented by counsel.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
