THIS MATTER is before the court on defendant's "Notice of Appeal to District Court the Detention Order Entered March 27, 2012" (#66). Preliminary review of the record of the detention hearing reveals that defendant proceeded pro se and was unable to present to the magistrate judge in a logical or coherent manner his arguments for release. While defendant seeks to appeal that determination for consideration of additional information through counsel, the court believes such motion is better deemed to be a motion for reconsideration rather than an appeal. The court will refer such motion to the magistrate judge to conduct a further hearing at which counsel for defendant can present whatever additional evidence he deems appropriate for consideration under 18 U.S.C. § 3145(g).
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that defendant's "Notice of Appeal to District Court the Detention Order Entered March 27, 2012" (#66) is DEEMED to be a Motion for Reconsideration, and is referred for hearing to the magistrate judge.
Max O. Cogburn Jr.
United States District Judge
