Petitioner JAIME I. ESTRADA, through counsel, asks this court for an ex parte
order authorizing the issuance of subpoenas and the payment of witness fees by the
United States Marshal as provided in 28 U.S.C. §1825(b). This court has already granted
petitioner indigent status and has set an evidentiary hearing in this matter for May 5,
2017, at 9:00 a.m. The following witnesses must be present at the evidentiary hearing in
order to allow Mr. Estrada to present an adequate case:
1. Deputy District Attorney Sandra Bishop
832 Twelfth St., Ste. 300
Modesto, CA 95353
DDA Bishop was the prosecutor in Estrada’s state trial and produced the
Stanislaus County District Attorney Office Memoranda regarding a plea offer and a
declaration filed during the state court’s consideration of Estrada’s state habeas petition.
2. Chuck McKenna
4224 Madison Lane
Turlock, CA 95382
Mr. McKenna was the Deputy District Attorney who appeared at the pre-trial
conference during which it appears that a 19-year offer was made.
Subpoenas are necessary to secure the appearances of these witnesses at the May
5, 2017 evidentiary hearing.
