Senior United States District Judge Robert L. Vinings Jr. granted an emergency motion for an extension of time to voluntarily surrender for good cause demonstrated.
The order was granted on the very day that Gammage was to report to the prison to begin his five years and 10 month sentence.
Gammage will now have until November 4, 2013 to voluntarily surrender.
On Thursday, August 22, 2013, Gammage filed a handwritten request for a 60 day medical extension due to a scheduled outpatient septoplasty surgery to relieve nasal obstructions.
In his handwritten request, he advised the court that his previous Atty. Chris Twyman filed a motion to withdraw as counsel. Gammage has also filed an indigent affidavit requesting appointment of counsel for further appeal.
The U.S. Marshal Service will provide Gammage with further information on when and where to surrender in a separate letter.
He has appealed his sentence to the U.S. Court of Appeals.
