United States v. Carstens

United States District Court, Seventh Circuit

November 14, 2013

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
MARZENA CARSTENS, Defendant.

MEMORANDUM

MILTON I. SHADUR, Senior District Judge.

This Court has received a letter from Marzena Carstens ("Carstens"), who is serving a custodial term at FCI Waseca, Minnesota, in which she details her accomplishments during her time in custody and asks this Court to enter an order reducing her sentence from 48 months to 24 months. This Court lacks the power to do so-once sentence is pronounced, the sentencing court loses jurisdiction, and Congress has placed all decisions thereafter within the control of the Bureau of Prisons. Accordingly, if Carstens is to obtain any relief from her sentence, that would have to be provided by the Executive Branch rather than the Judicial Branch of the United States government.
