MARK C. ANDERSON, DEFENDANT.
ORDER AFTER HEARING AND PARTIES STIPULATION ON THE SCHEDULE FOR THE FILING OF PRE TRIAL MOTIONS AND THE EXCLUSION OF TIME UNDER THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT Date: August 12, 2008 Time: 2:30 p.m.
Judge: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton On this date and time, August 12, 2008, 2:30 p.m., the court in the presence of all parties held a hearing upon the defendant's written submission to the court of a letter expressing his dissatisfaction with his court appointed attorney and with the medical treatment provided to him at the Sacramento County Jail, where he is held pre trial.
On the subject of representation, the government counsel was excused from the courtroom and the defendants's concerns were heard by the court. The court found the concerns not sufficient to excuse counsel and requested counsel to expend more effort and time toward the matter.
On the subject of the defendant's medical treatment, the U.S. Marshal's Service was advised by the court to look into the concerns and defense counsel was to also make contact with the jail administration and inquire into the matter.
Government counsel was then brought back into the courtroom.
The government counsel and defense counsel have thereafter agreed upon the following schedule for the filing of pretrial motions:
Hearing on defense motions: October 14, 2008 at 9:30 a.m. Non evidentiary.
Defense reply to the opposition: October 7, 2008; Government opposition: September 30, 2008 Defense motions filed: September 16, 2008 All counsel and defendant agree that time under the Speedy Trial Act from the date this stipulation is lodged through October 14, 2008 should be excluded in computing the time within which trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to Title 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (H)(8)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 for effective defense preparation.
