The opinion of the court was delivered by: Ronald M. Whyte United States District Judge
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS HEARING;  ORDER
Defendant and the government, through their respective counsel, hereby stipulate that, subject to the court's approval, the status hearing in the above-captioned matter, presently scheduled for February 4, 2008 at 9:00 a.m., may be continued to February 25, 2008, at 9:00 a.m.
The continuance is being requested as defense counsel needs additional time to secure records and or documents regarding the defendant's criminal history. To date the defense has secured the court documents in case number STO-342057A, originating in the Superior Court for the County of San Joaquin and court records for criminal case number FF 298802 which originates in the Superior Court for the County of Santa Clara. Defendant's counsel needs additional time to secure additional records to prove that Mr. Sarmiento-Sanchez is not the individual named in criminal case number STO-342057A. Completion of the above investigation will enable the parties to resolve this matter by plea agreement.
The parties further agree and stipulate that time should be excluded from and including February 4, 2008 through and including February 25, 2008, to provide counsel reasonable time to prepare, pursuant to Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(8)(A) and (B)(iv). Accordingly, the United States and the defendant agree that granting the requested exclusion of time will serve the interest of justice and outweigh the interest of the public and defendant in a speedy trial.
