IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 30, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERTO CARLOS SANCHEZ-MENDEZ, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE HEARING; ORDER
Date: May 22, 2009
Time: 9:00 A.M.
Dept Hon. Lawrence J. O'Neill
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, and through their respective attorneys of record herein, that the status conference hearing in the above-referenced action now scheduled for May 1, 2009, may be continued to May 22, 2009 at 9:00 A.M.
This continuance is requested by counsel for the defendant because no fast track points were offered due to the nature of a prior conviction. However, the specific circumstances surrounding the prior are not currently known. Defense counsel has previously ordered any available documentation relating to that conviction for the purpose of potential further plea negotiation. However, there has been a delay in obtaining the necessary information due to Alameda County apparently having misplaced the file. They are currently attempting to locate the information requested. The parties need time to receive and review that information, and pursue any appropriate further negotiation of a plea offer prior to the hearing. The requested continuance will conserve time and resources for all parties and the court.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded in the interests of justice, including but not limited to, the need for the period of time set forth herein for further defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§3161(h)(8)(A) and 3161(h)(8)(B)(i) and (iv).
Good cause exists. Time is excluded in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(8)(A) and 3161(h)(8)(B)(i) and (iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
