MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER OF DETENTION PENDING TRIAL

JASON B. LIBBY, Magistrate Judge.

A detention hearing has been held in accordance with the Bail Reform Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f). The following requires detention of the defendant pending trial in this case:

(1) There is a serious risk that the defendant will not appear; and

(2) There is a serious risk that the defendant will endanger the safety of another person or the community.

The evidence against the defendant meets the probable cause standard. The defendant has an extensive and continuous criminal history involving drugs, crimes of violence and weapons. Further, the defendant's criminal history includes repeated instances of being placed on probation or parole and having his supervision revoked. Additionally, there is currently and active warrant for the defendant's arrest for failing to appear. The defendant is a poor candidate for bond. The findings and conclusions contained in the Pretrial Services Report are adopted.

The defendant is committed to the custody of the United States Marshal or his designated representative for confinement in a corrections facility separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or being held in custody pending appeal. The defendant shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity for private consultation with defense counsel. On order of a court of the United States or on request of an attorney for the Government, the person in charge of the corrections facility shall deliver the defendant to the United States Marshal for the purpose of an appearance in connection with a court proceeding.

ORDERED.
