Sentencing for Russ Caso delayed

This whole thing is sad to watch. Russ is a good guy. Here's the latest:

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

v. Criminal No. 07-332 (HHK)

RUSSEL J. CASO, JR.

Defendant.

JOINT MOTION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE

On December 11, 2007, the Court accepted Russell J. Caso’s plea of guilty and deferred setting a date for his sentencing. The Court scheduled a status conference for May 23, 2008, at 9:45 a.m. As part of his plea agreement, Mr. Caso has agreed to cooperate with the government in any and all matters when required. In conformity with this agreement, Mr. Caso has been cooperating with government agents and prosecutors. The government anticipates that Mr. Caso’s cooperation will continue for the foreseeable future. In the view of both parties, no issues have arisen which require the Court’s intervention at this time.

Accordingly, the parties jointly move the Court to again defer setting a date for the sentencing of Mr. Rudy. The parties also ask that the Court continue the status conference to a date not less than 90 days in the future in order to allow Mr. Caso’s cooperation to continue uninterrupted. A proposed order is attached.

Dated this 2nd day of May, 2008.

FOR THE UNITED STATES:
JEFFREY A. TAYLOR
United States Attorney
Howard R. Sklamberg
Deputy Chief,

FOR THE DEFENDANT:
Kelly B. Kramer, Esq.
Nixon Peabody, LLP


Obviously, "Mr. Rudy" was an error. The motion was followed by this:
