UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 4:15CV01275 ERW
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on Petitioner Steven Willis’s Motion for Appointment of
New Counsel [ECF No. 30]. In his motion, Petitioner states he asked his counsel to object to him
being an armed career criminal and for his sentencing transcripts, neither of which he believes has
occurred. He also would like his case to be stayed pending a decision by the Eighth Circuit in
United States v. Naylor.
Petitioner’s motion for new counsel will be denied. His counsel has argued he is no
longer an armed career criminal in the amended motion filed on his behalf. Additionally, no
sentencing transcripts were filed in his criminal case. Lastly, the Court stayed this matter on July
11, 2017, pending a decision from the Eighth Circuit in United States v. Naylor.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner Steven Willis’s Motion for Appointment of
New Counsel [ECF No. 30] is DENIED.
Dated this 11th day of September, 2017.
E. RICHARD WEBBER
SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
