UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL HORTON, Defendant.

PRELIMINARY ORDER FOR FORFEITURE PURSUANT TO FED.R.CRIM.P. 32.2 WITH RESPECT TO CERTAIN PROPERTY OF CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL HORTON

DAVID R. HERNDON, Chief District Judge.

In the Indictment filed in the above cause on March 5, 2013, the United States sought forfeiture of certain property of Christopher Michael Horton, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. ยง 2253. The Court, upon consideration of guilty plea in this matter, hereby finds that the following property is forfeitable and hereby orders forfeited the following property:

One Black Apple I-Phone model A1332 IC:579C-E23808 contained in a red and black Griffin protective case;
One SATA 120GB Western digital hard drive Model #WD1200BEVS serial #WD-WXEX07E73286 with the markings of "Product of Thailand";
One IDE 20GB Hitachi hard drive Model #IC25N020ATCS04-O serial #CSH204DMDDVNSF; and
One Alienware Laptop Reg Model #P18G service tag #DVDG4R1 M14X laptop containing unknown size make/model hard drive and/or internal memory with the markings of "Made in China" and an embroidered name plate displaying the words "Built for Chris Horton (NINJA)".

The United States shall provide notice of the forfeiture and the right of persons other than the defendant who have any claim or legal interest in any of the property to file a petition with the Court. The notice shall be provided in a manner consistent with Supplemental Rule G(4)(a) of the Supplemental Rules for Admiralty or Maritime Claims and Asset Forfeiture Actions.

The notice shall state that the petition shall be set for a hearing to adjudicate the validity of the petitioner's alleged interest in the property, shall be signed by the petitioner under penalty of perjury, and shall set forth the nature and extent of the petitioner's right, title, or interest in the forfeited property, the time and circumstances of the petitioner's acquisition of the right, title or interest in the property, any additional facts supporting the petitioner's claim, and the relief sought.

The United States shall, also to the extent practicable, provide direct written notice to any person known to have alleged an interest in the property that is the subject of the Order for Forfeiture, as a substitute for the published notice to those persons so notified.

Upon the filing a petition alleging the third-party interests in the property, the court may amend this order to resolve the claimed third-party interests.

The United States Marshal or the custodian for the Federal Bureau of Investigation shall seize and reduce to his possession, if he has not already done so, the above-described property.

This Order, pursuant to Rule 32.2(b)(3) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, shall become final with respect to defendant Christopher Michael Horton at the time of the defendant's sentencing, regardless of whether or not the rights of actual or potential third-party petitioners have been determined by that time. This Order shall be made part of the sentence of defendant Christopher Michael Horton and shall be included in the Judgment imposed against the defendant. This Order is a final order with respect to the defendant, and this Order may be amended with respect to petitions filed by third-parties claiming an interest in the subject-matter forfeited property.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
