IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 24, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JEFFREY ALEXANDER LASSOTOVITCH, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Anthony W. Ishii Chief United States District Judge
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND ORDER THEREON Date: August 3, 2009 Time: 9:00 a.m. Judge: Hon. Anthony W. Ishii
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, MARLON COBER, Assistant United States Attorney, counsel for plaintiff, and ERIC V. KERSTEN, Assistant Federal Defender, counsel for defendant, Jeffrey Lassotovitch, that the date for status conference in this matter may be continued to August 3, 2009, or the soonest date thereafter that is convenient to the court. The date currently set for status conference is July 27, 2009. The requested new date is August 3, 2009.
The government extended a revised plea offer on July 22, 2009. Additional time is needed to review the revised offer with Mr. Lassotovitch. In addition, defense counsel will be out of the office on July 27, 2009. Therefore, the requested continuance will also allow for continuity of counsel.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded as necessary for effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv). For this reason, the ends of justice served by the granting of the requested continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED. The intervening period of delay is excluded in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
