IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 13, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
PATRICK D. BURTON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court is Defendant's Motion to Continue Sentencing Hearing (Doc. 61), currently set for July 16, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. Defendant seeks a continuance due to a notice his counsel received from the Government from the Illinois State Police (Doc. 61, Ex. A), explaining that due to an internal investigation regarding one of its forensic chemists who conducted the chemical analysis used in the prosecution of this matter (Id., Ex. B), the exhibits in Defendant's case must be re-analyzed. Therefore, a continuance is necessary to await the new analysis results. The Motion further states that the Government concurs in this continuance request. For good cause shown, the Motion (Doc. 61) is GRANTED. Sentencing is hereby continued to August 20, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
