United States of America v. Basil O. Proctor

May 8, 2012

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
v.
BASIL O. PROCTOR



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul Barbadoro United States District Judge

ORDER

I cannot grant defendant's request to represent himself unless I determine that he is competent. Although I have seen nothing in my dealings with the defendant that calls his competency into question, the representations made by his former counsel give rise to reasonable cause to believe that the defendant may be suffering from a mental disease or defect rendering him mentally incompetent. Accordingly, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 4241, 4247, I designate Dr. Drukteinis to prepare and file a report assessing the defendant's competency. I am issuing this order on my own motion pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 4241(b). The government shall notify Dr. Drukteinis of this order. Dr Drukteinis shall provide his report and a bill for services rendered to the government. The government shall, in turn, provide copies for the defendant and shall file the report and bill under seal. Defendant's objection (Doc. No. 73) is overruled.

SO ORDERED.

Paul Barbadoro
