B. Don James was scheduled to report to a federal prison facility Monday (June 25th), but that has been delayed until July 18th.
James' attorney, Hilton Conger, filed a motion last Monday, June 18th seeking a delay in James' reporting date.
According to Conger's motion, \"As of this date (June 18th), the defendant (James) has not been notified of the location of the facility to which he is to report.\"
The motion states that \"The defendant (James) has been advised by the U.S. Marshall's Service that as of today's date (June 18th, 2007), the Marshall's Service has not been notified of the facility and that due to the fact that the defendant (James) has medical conditions which need to be addressed and the court's sentencing order provides that the defendant's need for medical treatment be given consideration, it may take as many as 90 days to assign a facility.\"
\"Wherefore, the defendant (James) moves the court to grant a 90 day extension for his reporting to begin service of his sentencing.\"
U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell granted Conger's in motion, in part, denying a 90 day delay but granting him a 23 day extension. The judge's order states that \"The defendant (James) shall surrender for service of sentence at the institution designated by the Bureau of Prisons before 2:00 p.m. on July 18th.
James was sentenced on May 25th in U.S. District Court in Nashville by Judge Campbell to a total of 97 months in federal prison on various counts of wire fraud.
