IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 2, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
VENUS LATRES DAWSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
ORDER AFTER HEARING EXCLUDING TIME DATE: March 3, 2009 TIME: 9:15 a.m.
This matter came before the Court on January 21, 2009 for status conference. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samantha Spangler appeared for the United States. Attorney Joseph Wiseman appeared on behalf of the defendant, who was not present and has a waiver of appearance on file. After hearing from counsel regarding the status of the case, the Court set a further status conference for March 3, 2009, at 9:15 a.m. With the agreement of both parties, the Court excluded time from the Speedy Trial Act calculation pursuant to Local Code T4 and 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv) to give counsel reasonable preparation time. The Court finds that the interests of justice served by the granting of the continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
