August 25, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
TORI MICHELLE STOHLMAN, JAMES KEITH FLETCHER, KYLE LEONARD, DEFENDANTS.
ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
This matter came before the Court for a status conference on August 18, 2009, at 9:15 a.m. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras. Defendants Stohlman, Fletcher and Leonard were personally present. Attorney Jesse Santana appeared for Defendant Fletcher, Attorney David Vasquez appeared for Defendant Stohlman, and Attorney Roberto Marquez appeared for Defendant Leonard.
The parties and all defendants agreed to set a status conference date of September 29, 2009, at 9:15 a.m. The parties have been meeting during the last two months to discuss potential resolution. The additional time is needed for further negotiations and to ensure attorney preparation in the event of a change of plea.
The Court ordered the status conference continued to September 29, 2009, at 9:15 a.m. The Court further ordered that time be excluded under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare). The Court directed government counsel to prepare a formal order.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. A status conference is set for September 29, 2009, at 9:15 a.m.
2. Based on the parties' representations, the Court finds that the ends of justice outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. Accordingly, time under the Speedy Trial Act shall be excluded through September 29, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED
