UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
ALMONTIE M. SHIELDS, Defendant.
DAVID R. HERNDON, Chief District Judge.
Before the Court is a motion to withdraw as counsel of record for defendant Almontie Shields (Doc. 756). Assistant Federal Public Defender Ethan Skaggs seeks withdrawal (along with the Federal Public Defender's Office) due to a conflict of interest. The government is aware of said conflict. For good cause, said motion to withdraw is GRANTED (Doc. 756). Assistant Federal Public Defender Ethan Skaggs is terminated as representative counsel for defendant. Accordingly, the Court APPOINTS as CJA counsel, attorney John Stobbs, 307 Henry Street, Suite 211, Alton, IL, 62002. In light of John Stobbs' recent appointment, the Court resets defendant's final revocation hearing for September 3, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
