IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 13, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
KYLE KIMOTO, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
On July 29, 2010, the Court denied Kyle Kimoto's pro se motion to correct sentence pursuant to Fed.R.Crim.P. 35(a) because he is represented by counsel and is not entitled to also represent himself by filing motions without the aid of his counsel. 28 U.S.C. § 1654; McKaskle v. Wiggins, 465 U.S. 168 (1984); United States v. Kosmel, 272 F.3d 501, 506 (7th Cir. 2001) ( Docs. 208, 209). On August 10, 2010, Kimoto filed a pro se motion asking the Court to reconsider its July 29 Order, submitting that counsel has moved to withdraw from representing him (Doc. 212).
Neither this district court nor the appeals court has relieved Kimoto's counsel from representing him. Because Kimoto is represented by counsel he is not entitled to file motions without the aid of his counsel.
Accordingly, the Court DENIES Kimoto's pro se motion for reconsideration of his Rule 35(a) motion (Doc. 212).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
