IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 18, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DANIEL ZEPEDA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Anthony W. Ishii
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE SENTENCING AND ORDER THEREON Date: July 27, 2009 Time: 9:00 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, LAUREL JACKSON MONTOYA, Assistant United States Attorney, and DOUGLAS J. BEEVERS, Assistant Federal Defender, counsel for Defendant, Daniel Zepeda, that the date for sentencing may be continued to July 27, 2009. The date currently set for sentencing is June 22, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. The requested new date is July 27, 2009, at 9:00 a.m. or the soonest date thereafter that is convenient to the court.
This continuance is at the request of counsel for the defendant and for the government. Defense counsel is consulting with attorney David Torres in this matter. Mr. Torres is currently in a trial that will last through the end of June. He needs additional time to review the discovery and meet with our client. Additionally, this case is being reassigned to a different prosecutor, Elana Landau, and the requested continuance will allow her time to review the case and provide the defense a plea offer prior to the next hearing. The requested continuance will conserve time and resources for both parties and the court.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded in the interests of justice herein for effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(8)(A) and 3161(h)(8)(B)(i) and (iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED. Time is hereby excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(8)(A) and 3161(h)(8)(B)(i) and (iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Anthony W. Ishii CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
