Judge orders Roger Stone to surrender July 14, denying his request for an extended delay

WASHINGTON - A federal judge ordered Roger Stone to surrender on July 14 and refused his two-month reparation request for serving his sentence for the coronavirus pandemic.
Stone, who was originally supposed to surrender on Tuesday, asked US district judge Amy Berman Jackson to allow him to stay home until September 3, saying his age and health status could make COVID-19 life-threatening.
The Department of Justice did not refuse to extend Stone's handover date by two months, saying that since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, it has been his policy to make such requests to the accused - as long as the accused do not pose any public security or aviation threat represent. The United States law firm in Washington, DC, which has prosecuted Stone, has routinely approved requests for delayed detention since March, according to prosecutors.

Stone will be in a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia. Nobody tested positive at the facility.
Jackson also ordered Stone to be taken to the detention center in the two weeks before his delivery, presumably so that he could quarantine himself before he went to prison.
Roger Stone, former political adviser to President Donald Trump, arrives for his hearing at the Federal District Court in Washington on February 20, 2020.
"This will address the suspect's stated medical concerns during the current increase in reported cases in Florida, and particularly in Broward County," said Jackson, referring to the county in which Stone lives, "and it will respect and protect the health of other inmates protect, share the defendant's concern about the possible introduction and spread of the virus in this now unaffected facility. "
The deadly virus has killed dozens of prisoners and infected thousands across the federal prison system. In response to the pandemic, Attorney General William Barr ordered the Bureau of Prisons to speed up the transfer of vulnerable prisoners from the most affected facilities to domestic detention.
Stone, a long-time ally of President Donald Trump, was sentenced to just over three years in prison. A jury convicted him of seven crimes, including lying to Trump's lawmaker to protect his campaign and obstructing Congress's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential race.
One of the prosecutors in Stone's case accused the Department of Justice of treating Stone favorably for political reasons. Aaron Zelinsy, who resigned from the case in protest, testified before Congress on Wednesday that the Justice Department leadership had pressured her to recommend Stone a milder sentence because he was Trump's ally.
