United States v. Williams

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


July 19, 2010

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
ROBERT D. WILLIAMS, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge

ORDER

Pending before the Court is Williams' motion to continue sentencing hearing (Doc. 27). Specifically, Defendant Williams requests that his sentencing hearing currently scheduled for July 23, 2010 be continued for at least sixty (60) days in order to determine the status of Senate Bill S. 1789. Defendant submits that the passage of the bill might affect the mandatory minimum sentence in this case. This is the fourth such continuance filed by Defendant Williams. Pursuant to USA v. Tanner, 544 F.3d 793. 796-956 (7th Cir. 2008) (Seventh Circuit held that prospective change in law not sufficient reason to grant continuance), the Court DENIES Williams' motion to continue sentencing hearing (Doc. 27).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
