IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
October 3, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
ANGEL MANUEL PINET, DEFENDANT
The opinion of the court was delivered by: William W. Caldwell United States District Judge
AND NOW, this 3rd day of October, 2011, upon consideration of Defendant's pro se motion (Doc. 302) to reduce sentence, we conclude that the motion is rendered moot by Standing Order 11-3 (Doc. 303), which appoints a federal public defender to represent Defendant. See United States v. D'Amario, 268 F. App'x 179, 180 (3d Cir. 2008) ("The Constitution does not confer a right to proceed simultaneously by counsel and pro se . . . ."); see also United States v. Vampire Nation, 451 F.3d 189, 206 n.17 (3d Cir. 2006). Therefore, it is ORDERED that the motion (Doc. 302) is DENIED, without prejudice to Defendant's right to file a motion seeking similar relief through counsel.
William W. Caldwell
