IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
December 3, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The opinion of the court was delivered by: (Judge Conner)
AND NOW, this 3rd day of December, 2010, upon consideration of the defendant's motion (Doc. 185) to suppress evidence derived from purported violations of defendant's Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights, wherein the defendant appears to allege that the federal government played a role in defendant's removal from a Pennsylvania county work release program through the filing of a false misconduct charge, and alleging that the federal government violated defendant's due process rights under the Fifth Amendment with respect to said misconduct charge,*fn1 the court noting that said work release was controlled by state and county actors, that beyond defendant's bald assertions that the federal government played a role in bringing the misconduct charges, defendant fails to allege what, if any, evidence related to the above-captioned matter was obtained in violation of defendant's rights, and the court finding that defendant's allegations are both irrelevant to the instant matter and baseless, it is hereby ORDERED that defendant's motion (Doc. 185) to suppress evidence is DENIED.
