[SalesForce] Java sql.TimeStamp to Salesforce

I have a Java mapping that takes a field of type java.sql.Timestamp and insert it into Salesforce. Example of a field in the db:

2013-10-17 13:01:01

When it is inserted into Salesforce it looks like:

10/16/2013 5:00 PM

How do I fix it that it inserts the date as 10/17/2013 1:01 PM?

Here is how I set the field and getModifyD us returned as java.sql.Timestamp

caseSObject.setField("Client_Modified_Date__c", clientNote.getModifyD());

Assuming your sample data is in the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time zone, it would be:
