United States District Court, D. Massachusetts

December 11, 2017

v.
JUAN MANUEL TEJADA-SERRANO a/k/a JOSE ARROYO

          The Defendant By his Attorney, James B. Krasnoo (BBO# 279300) Krasnoo, Klehm & Falkner LLP.

          MOTION, FILED PURSUANT TO COURT ORDER OF DECEMBER 8, 2017, TO MAINTAIN STATUS QUO REGARDING SENTENCING

         Now comes the defendant in the above-entitled matter and, filing this motion in response to the Court's Order (Saris, J.) ordering same, respectfully requests that this Honorable Court maintain the status quo regarding his sentencing and assigns as reasons therefore the following:

         1. On or about December 6, 2017, due to the sudden unavailability of the Court (Talwani, J.), the Court (Talwani, J.) cancelled the defendant's sentencing which was then scheduled for Wednesday, December 13, 2017.

         2. On Friday, December 8, 2017, at about noon, another this Court (Saris, J.) initially scheduled a status conference on the same date at 3:00 p.m. but thereafter canceled said hearing and ordered undersigned counsel to file a motion by 12 noon on Monday, December 11, 2017.

         3. The defendant, held without bail in the instant case but sentenced to a 21 month sentence in docket no. 16-10059-GAO which he is currently serving, has serious health conditions.

         4. On Sunday December 3, 2017, at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), two days after his serious operation because of his life-threatening heart condition in which the LVAD device was removed, the defendant met with the undersigned.

         5. The defendant, upon information and belief, has been an MGH patient since October 23, 2017 lo present.

         6.

         8. As a result of the undersigned's discussion with the defendant about his stamina and strength to appear for sentencing at the federal district court, the undersigned opines that if sentencing must be imposed before December 31, 2017, sentencing should occur at MGH, but if sentencing can be postponed until after December 31, 2017, the defendant would likely be able to be transported to the federal district court for sentencing.

         9. As there is no present date set for sentencing, the defendant requests that the status quo remain in place.

         10. If the undersigned learns that the defendant is to be removed from MGH, he can notify the Court who may then be able to schedule the sentencing.

         11. The undersigned notes that the final PSR was produced and sent to the undersigned by email on December 7, 2017 and that it contains all of the undersigned's objections to the PSR.
