ORDER

6

We have considered Pappas' appeal of the denial of his motion for bail. We find that the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying bail. While the time that Mr. Pappas has been held in preventive detention has been significant, in the circumstances of this case, we do not find a violation of due process. We take notice of the fact that the district court has taken steps to see to it that the case proceed to trial forthwith. Accordingly, we affirm its order. Our decision is, of course, without prejudice to renewing the motion in the district court should there be undue further delay not occasioned by actions of the defendant.

7

The district court's order is affirmed.
