United States District Court, W.D. Wisconsin
HONORABLE WILLIAMS M. CONLEY, U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE.
hearing to address the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals'
limited remand of Christopher Anstice conditions was held on
October 31, 2019. The defendant knowingly and voluntarily
waived his right to physically present at the re-sentencing
hearing pursuant to Fed. R. Crim. P. 43(c)(1)(B). The
defendant was represented in absentia by Associate Federal
Defender Kelly Welsh. The government was represented by
Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Wegner. U.S. Probation Officer
Marc Stieve was also present. From the record I make the
following findings of fact.
defendant was sentenced in the Western District of Wisconsin
on October 2, 2018, following his conviction for conspiracy
to distribute 500 or more grams of methamphetamine, in
violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a) and 846. This
offense is a Class A felony. He was committed to the custody
of the Bureau of Prisons to serve a term of imprisonment of
120 months, with a 60-month term of supervised release to
follow. This was the mandatory minimum sentence required by
Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order for limited
remand in this case on July 19, 2019. The parties have
stipulated to a reconsideration of the mandatory and
non-mandatory conditions of supervised release and waived
appearances. That request has been granted.
to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, the primary goals of
supervised release are to assist defendants' transition
into the community after a term of imprisonment and to
provide rehabilitation. Supervision in this case will provide
the defendant with needed correctional programming, including
rehabilitative programs, to assist with community
reintegration; afford adequate deterrence to further criminal
conduct; and to protect the public from further crimes
perpetrated by the defendant.
undischarged term of imprisonment is to be followed by a
five-year term of supervised release, subject to mandatory
conditions. In light of the nature of the offense and the
defendant's personal history, I adopt condition numbers 1
through 12, and 14 through 16 as proposed and justified in
the second addendum to the presentence report. Neither party
has raised any objections to the proposals and the defendant,
through defense counsel has waived both the oral reading of
conditions and individualized justification of each.
when the defendant is released from confinement to begin his
term of supervised release, either the defendant or the
supervising probation officer believes that any of the
conditions imposed today are no longer appropriate, either
one may petition the Court for review.
instant offense is drug related, and the defendant has a
history of drug use. The mandatory drug testing as set forth
at 18 U.S.C. § 3583(d) is not waived. The drug testing
requirements are sufficiently addressed in special condition
