IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 9, 2012
TIMOTHY B STOKES, PETITIONER,
LISA J W HOLLINGSWORTH, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Before the Court is a Report and Recommendation (R&R) (Doc. 10), issued on December 19, 2011, by United States Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier recommending denial of petitioner's Section 2241 petition for a writ of habeas corpus (Doc. 1). Generally, petitioner challenges the denial of his request for twelve months placement in a halfway house pursuant to the Second Chance Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3624(c). The R&R recommends denial of petitioner's writ, as he failed to exhaust his administrative remedies.
Upon issuance, the R&R was sent to the parties with a notice informing them of their right to appeal by way of filing objections within fourteen days of service (See Doc. 10-1). Thus, the parties' objections required filing by January 6, 2012. Neither party filed timely objections to the R&R. Therefore, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this Court need not conduct a de novo review. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985). Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the R&R (Doc. 10) in its entirety and dismisses petitioner's claim without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
