CURTIS V. GÓMEZ, District Judge.
Before the Court is the motion of Leomar De La Rosa Cedano to be released from custody or to expedite his sentencing.
On February 1, 2017, Leomar De La Rosa Cedano ("Rosa Cedano") was charged via information with illegally entering the United States. On February 2, 2017, the United States moved for pretrial detention of Rosa Cedano. On February 3, 2017, the Magistrate Judge granted the motion for pretrial detention. In a March 16, 2017, change of plea hearing, Rosa Cedano pled guilty to illegally entering the United States. On that same date, a sentencing hearing in this matter was scheduled for July 20, 2017.
On April 7, 2017, Rosa Cedano filed a "Motion for Release From Custody or Alternatively Expedited Sentencing" (the "Motion"). In the Motion, Rosa Cedano states that the crime for which he has pled guilty has a statutory maximum sentence of six months incarceration and an applicable sentencing guideline range of zero to six months incarceration. By July 20, 2017, Rosa Cedano will have already been in custody for nearly six months. As such, Rosa Cedano requests that the Court either hold a hearing addressing his potential release pending sentencing, or, in the alternative, that the Court expedite his sentencing. In a response to the motion, the United States objects to Rosa Cedano's release, but joins in Rosa Cedano's request for an expedited sentencing.
