This matter came on for Status Conference on August 19, 2008 in the courtroom of the Honorable Lawrence K. Karlton, Senior Judge. Assistant United States Attorney Phil Ferrari appeared on behalf of the United States of America. Assistant Federal Defender Lauren Cusick stood in for AFD Caro Marks, appearing on behalf of Defendant Corwin Lavelle Brown, who was not present in court, but pursuant to the order of the magistrate judge, in an in-patient drug/alcohol rehabilitation facility.
Counsel indicated that due to the defendant's unavailability, she would need additional time to allow the defendant to complete his rehabilitation program, after which she would need additional time to review the discovery with the defendant. The government concurred.
Accordingly, the parties agreed to exclude time from calculation under the Speedy Trial Act for the reasons stated above, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§3161 (h)(8)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4, for preparation of counsel, and (h)(3)(A), for unavailability of the defendant, from August 19, 2008, up to and including October 28, 2008.
Good cause appearing therefor,
IT IS ORDERED that this matter is continued to October 28, 2008, at 9:30 a.m..
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§3161 (h)(8)(B) (iv) and (h)(3)(A), and Local Code T4, the period from August 19, 2008, up to and including October 28, 2008, is excluded from the time computations required by the Speedy Trial Act due to ongoing preparation of defense counsel and unavailability of the defendant.
