IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 1, 2013
QUAWNTAY ADAMS, PETITIONER,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
MEMORANDUM & ORDER
This matter is before the Court on petitioner Quawntay Adams's motion to vacate, set aside, or correct sentence, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (Doc. 1).
Petitioner was convicted on charges that he possessed more than 100 kilograms of marijuana with the intent to distribute, see 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(B)(vii), conspired to commit money laundering, see 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(1)(A)(i) and (h), and attempted to escape from custody, see 18 U.S.C. § 751(a). On direct appeal, the Seventh Circuit held the evidence did not support the conviction for conspiracy to commit money laundering but otherwise affirmed the judgment of conviction. Instantly, petitioner raises various claims in relation to his conviction, including claims of ineffective assistance of counsel, which petitioner alleges warrant the relief he seeks.
Pursuant to Rule 4 of the RULES GOVERNING SECTION 2255 PROCEEDINGS, the Court ORDERS the government to file a response to petitioner's motion within THIRTY (30) DAYS of the date of this Order. The government shall, as part of its response, attach all relevant portions of the record.
