IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 9, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
KATHRYN KINDERMAN DEFENDANT.
ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME
The Court held a status conference in this case on April 28, 2009. The defendant requested that the case be continued from April 28, 2009 to June 9, 2009 at 9:15 a.m. for defense preparation. The time between April 28, 2009 and June 9, 2009 shall be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The Court finds that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the 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). Specifically, the defense requires more time to review financial records relevant to the potential loss in this case. The defense has hired an accountant for this purpose. Therefore, the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A).
If this case does not resolve at the June 9, 2009 status conference, the Court will set this case for trial.
