UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT IN AND FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 9, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JOHN MARVIN BALLARD, DEFENDANT
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John C. Coughenour United States District Judge
ORDER TO CONTINUE SENTENCING
Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance of the date now set for sentencing in this case, February 17, 2009, at 9:00 a.m., would deny respective counsel for both parties reasonable time necessary for effective preparation and effective representation of counsel, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court specifically finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such a continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in sentencing on the date now set.
Based on these findings and pursuant to the stipulation of the parties, the Court hereby adopts the stipulation of the parties as its order, with the following modification: The new sentencing date shall be May 26, 2009, at 9:00 a.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
