RENITA FRANKLIN-THROWER,



v.

Defendant.

Criminal No. 07-274-01(RJL)

GOVERNMENT'S MOTION FOR ISSUANCE OF A BENCH WARRANT

The United States, by and through its attorney, the United States Attorney for the District of

Columbia, hereby respectfully requests that the Court issue a bench warrant for the defendant in this

case. In support of this motion, the government states as follows:

On October 16, 2007, an indictment was issued in this case, charging the defendant with

engaging in a scheme to obtain funds by embezzlement from an organization receiving federal funds,

in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 666(a)(1)(A). Counsel had previously been appointed in connection with

this case (see 07-382M-01 (CR)) to facilitate pre-indictment plea discussions.

At the time of her indictment, the defendant was scheduled to meet with her appointed

counsel, Assistant Federal Public Defender Shawn Moore, the following Wednesday, October 17,

2007. Magistrate Judge Robinson therefore held off on issuing a warrant for her arrest, but

indicated that she would do so if the defendant did not appear for her meeting. Government counsel

has since confirmed with Shawn Moore that the defendant did not appear for her meeting with him,

and that he has had no further contact with her in the intervening week.

In light of the foregoing, the government requests that the Court issue a warrant for the

defendant’s arrest.



Respectfully submitted,

JEFFREY A. TAYLOR
United States Attorney
