Count 51 comprised forfeiture allegations against all defendants. 2. On January 20, 2010 a superseding indictment was returned by the grand jury charging the same offenses in the same counts, excluding Count 51, which was retitled as a forfeiture allegation. (Doc. #209). 3. On April 5, 2010, following a jury trial, Farrington was convicted of all counts. 4. On June 2, 2011, Farrington was sentenced to 132 months custody, among other things.

the purpose of executing and attempting to execute a scheme and artifice to defraud and to obtain money, as set forth below, did knowingly cause to be deposited, for the purpose of being sent and delivered by Federal Express, a commercial interstate carrier, according to the direction thereon, an envelope addressed to Platinum Title Partners, 5325 Katy Freeway, #2, Houston , TX 77007, containing a check in the amount of $18,000, payable to the order of Platinum Title Partners. 7. Under Title 18, United States Code, Section 3148(c), if there is probable cause to believe that, while on release, the defendant committed a Federal, State, or local felony, a rebuttable presumption arises that no condition or combination of conditions will assure that the defendant will not pose a danger to the safety of any other person or the community. CONCLUSION In view of the foregoing, the government requests the Court to issue a warrant for the arrest of defendant Eric Rulack Farmington Jr., ordering that he be brought before the court for a proceeding in accordance with Title 18, United States Code, Section 3148(b) and that after such hearing, if the court finds that (1) there is probable cause to believe that the defendant has committed a Federal, State, or local crime while on release and (2) that there is no condition or combination of conditions of release that will assure that the defendant will not flee or pose a danger to the safety of any other person or the community or is unlikely to abide by any condition or combination of conditions of release, that the court enter an order of revocation and detention and that the defendant be held without bond pending the transfer to a designated institution so serve his sentence.
