UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
GILBERT DEMETRIUS AGUILAR,
ORDER RELEAVING FPD AND
APPOINTING CJA CONFLICT COUNSEL
RENEE BAKER, et al.,
Case No. 3:12-cv-00397-MMD-WGC
The Court previously appointed the Federal Public Defender to represent the
petitioner (dkt. no. 18).
The Federal Public Defender (herein "FPD") has identified a conflict of interest
with the petitioner, and has indicated to the Court their inability to further represent the
petitioner (dkt no. 19). The Court's Criminal Justice Act Designee has, however, located
counsel, Mary Lou Wilson, who is willing to be appointed to represent the petitioner
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the FPD is hereby released as counsel.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Mary Lou Wilson is hereby appointed to
represent the petitioner herein. Ms. Wilson, is a Criminal Justice Act panel attorney for
the United States District Court, District of Nevada. Ms. Wilson shall represent petitioner
in all future proceedings in this Court relating to this matter (including subsequent
actions) and appeals therefrom, pursuant to 18. U.S.C. Section 3006A (a)(2)(B), until
allowed to withdraw.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that CJA counsel for petitioner shall meet with
petitioner as soon as reasonably possible to: (a) review the procedures applicable in
cases under 28 U.S.C. Section 2254; (b) discuss and explore with petitioner, as fully as
possible, the potential grounds for habeas corpus relief in petitioner's case; and (c)
advise petitioner that all possible grounds for habeas corpus relief must be raised at this
time and that the failure to do so will likely result in the omitted grounds being barred
from future review under the rules regarding abuse of writ.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that counsel for petitioner and counsel for
respondents shall within forty-five (45) days file a joint statement describing what
portions of petitioner's state court record have been obtained and what portions are
missing. Counsel for respondents should make available to counsel for petitioner
(photocopying costs at the latter's expense), as soon as reasonably possible, a copy of
whatever portions of the state court record they possess regarding the judgment
petitioner is challenging herein.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that counsel for petitioner shall file an amended
petition for writ of habeas corpus within ninety (90) days, which shall include all known
grounds for relief (both exhausted and unexhausted). Respondent shall have thirty (30)
days after the filing of the amended petitioner within which to answer, or otherwise
respond to, the amended petition.
DATED THIS 15th day of May 2013.
