Portland, Maine: The Office of the United States Attorney announced that James M. Cameron,
of Rome, Maine was scheduled to make an initial appearance in the United States Courthouse for the
District of New Mexico in Albuquerque today following his arrest yesterday by the United States
Marshal’s Service (“USMS”) in Albuquerque pursuant to an arrest warrant issued in the District of Maine
as the result of Cameron’s alleged failure to abide by his bail conditions. Cameron was scheduled to
appear before United States Magistrate Judge Robert Hayes Scott.
A magistrate judge must order a defendant arrested for a bail violation in another district be
transferred to the district issuing an arrest warrant if, at a hearing, the government produces the arrest
warrant and proof of the defendant’s identity. An identity hearing will be scheduled in
Albuquerque. Following the hearing, it is expected that Cameron will be transported back to Maine by
the USMS. Once in Maine, Cameron will be scheduled to appear before Chief Judge John A. Woodcock,
Jr. who can revoke the bail order if he finds probable cause to believe that Cameron violated a condition
of his release.
The investigation leading to the Cameron’s arrest and initial appearance was conducted by the
USMS in Maine, New Mexico and elsewhere.
