…Letter re sentencing date as to Evan Greebel.
In order to afford counsel additional time to collect letters and other materials in aid of sentencing, this court grants Mr. Greebel one final adjournment of the 6/26/18 sentencing date to 8/9/18 at 11:00am.
Counsel shall file a sentencing memoranda by 7/16/18, the government will respond by 7/23/18, and any reply is due by 7/30/18. The Court notes, further requests for adjournments may not be granted absent good cause.
Ordered by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto on 5/11/2018….
Reed Brodsky, on behalf of Mr. Greebel, is (as most white collar defense lawyers do) asking the able judge to delay sentencing by 45 days (that’s a three page PDF file). The government is not agreeing to do so. Of course, a delay naturally means (assuming he gets a jail sentence) Mr. Greebel goes away later in 2018.
In fact, he might even be able to stay out, while his inevitable appeals are prosecuted.
So — I offer R.West something “more interesting” to chew on this Friday: a bleeding heart plea, for a last summer of relative freedom, with his young family. The letter also discloses that Mr. Greebel has now seen the
draft Pre-Sentencing Report from the Probation Department (subject only to possible revisions, by addenda, from the judge’s bench). But the defense doesn’t disclose the projected sentences — unlike Marty’s case, at this same point. [I wonder if it is materially worse — than Brodsky was expecting(?)… thus this delay, to marshall more in the way of character references, letters of support, etc.]
I have no idea whether Judge Matsumoto will allow this.
Do stay tuned, as I expect she will rule rather quickly.
