United States v. Aguilar-Godinez

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


June 1, 2009

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
v.
MANUEL AGUILAR-GODINEZ, AND JUAN GABRIEL ALVAREZ, DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Garland E. Burrell

STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME

The parties request that the status conference currently set for May 15, 2009, be continued to June 5, 2009, and stipulate that the time beginning May 15, 2009, and extending through June 5, 2009, should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The parties submit that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for each defendant may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv); Local Code T4.

The parties are in the process of discussing and negotiating the various plea offers in this case. Each defendant will need time to consider his or her offer in light of the discovery. As such, the attorneys for each defendant need more time to review the discovery in this case, discuss that discovery with their respective clients, consider new evidence that may affect the disposition of this case, conduct necessary legal research and investigation, and then discuss with their clients how to proceed. The parties stipulate and agree that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A).

Respectfully Submitted, LAWRENCE G. BROWN Acting United States Attorney
