CASE NO. MJ 11-548

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. MICHAEL PETER SIMONSON, Defendant.


DETENTION ORDER

Offense charged: Escape Date of Detention Hearing: January 4, 2012.

The Court, having conducted a detention hearing pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f), and based upon the factual findings and statement of reasons for detention hereafter set forth, finds that no condition or combination of conditions which defendant can meet will reasonably assure the appearance of defendant as required and the safety of other persons and the community.

FINDINGS OF FACT AND STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR DETENTION

1. Defendant is charged with absconding from a halfway house, Pioneer

Residential Reentry Center.

2. Defendant was not interviewed by Pretrial Services. Some of his background information is unknown or unverified. Defendant does not contest entry of an order of detention.

3. Defendant poses a risk of nonappearance based on a history of problems with compliance with pretrial and probation supervision, a history of failing to appear, and a history of failing to comply with court orders and terms of supervision. Defendant poses a risk of danger based on criminal history, the nature of the instant offense, and a history of failing to comply.

4. There does not appear to be any condition or combination of conditions that will reasonably assure the defendant's appearance at future Court hearings while addressing the danger to other persons or the community. It is therefore ORDERED:

1. Defendant shall be detained pending trial and committed to the custody of the Attorney General for confinement in a correction facility separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or being held in custody pending appeal;
2. Defendant shall be afforded reasonable opportunity for private consultation with counsel;
3. On order of the United States or on request of an attorney for the Government, the person in charge of the corrections facility in which defendant is confined shall deliver the defendant to a United States Marshal for the purpose of an appearance in connection with a court proceeding; and
4. The Clerk shall direct copies of this Order to counsel for the United States, to counsel for the defendant, to the United States Marshal, and to the United State Pretrial Services Officer.
