UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. ESTEBAN MARTINEZ-MEJIA


MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER OF DETENTION PENDING TRIAL

A detention hearing has been held in accordance with the Bail Reform Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f). Detention of the defendant pending trial in this case is necessary because there is a serious risk that the defendant will not appear.

The evidence against the defendant meets the probable cause standard. The defendant is an alien to the United States charged with illegally re-entering the United States after having been previously deported. The defendant has no status to remain in the United States. If released from the custody of the Marshals, the defendant will be deported again. The findings and conclusions contained in the Pretrial Services Report are adopted and the defendant is ordered detained pending trial.

The defendant is committed to the custody of the United States Marshal or his designated representative for confinement in a corrections facility separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or being held in custody pending appeal. The defendant shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity for private consultation with defense counsel. On order of a court of the United States or on request of an attorney for the Government, the person in charge of the corrections facility shall deliver the defendant to the United States Marshal for the purpose of an appearance in connection with a court proceeding.

ORDERED this 7th day of September, 2018.
