United States District Court, N.D. Georgia, Atlanta Division
March 18, 2015
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
FREDERICK JENKINS (1) and WILLIE JENKINS (2)
ORINDA D. EVANS, District Judge.
This criminal case is before the Court on the Final Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Alan J. Baverman filed January 29, 2015 [Doc. 63] ("R&R"). No objections have been filed.
In the R&R, the Magistrate Judge recommends that the motions to suppress filed by each Defendant and Defendant Willie Jenkins' motion to sever defendants be denied. Specifically, the Magistrate Judge noted that the Court held evidentiary hearings on the motions to suppress but that instead of filing post-evidentiary hearing briefs, each Defendant filed a nearly identical pleading conceding that they were not in custody when interviewed and that their statements were voluntary. In addition, the Magistrate Judge concluded that Willie Jenkins was satisfied with the government's proposed redactions since he did not file a supplemental motion under Bruton by August 29, 2014 indicating his dissatisfaction, as directed at the pretrial conference.
The Court having read and considered the R&R and noting the absence of any objections, it is hereby adopted as the opinion and order of the Court. For the reasons set forth in the R&R, Defendants' motions to suppress [Docs. 39, 43] and Defendant Willie Jenkins' motion to sever [Doc. 44] are DENIED.
