STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER EXCLUDING TIME FROM (18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A)) SPEEDY TRIAL ACT CALCULATION
With the agreement of the parties, and with the consent of defendant Steve Malone, the Court enters this order documenting defendant's exclusion of time under the Speedy Trial Act,18 U.S.C. § 3161(c)(1), from October 26, 2009, to November 23, 2009. The parties agree, and the Court finds and holds, as follows:
1. Defendant agreed to an exclusion of time under the Speedy Trial Act. Defendant's counsel, Mr. Tyler, re-entered the case only on October 19. He requires additional time to review discovery, to meet with the defendant and to discuss the case with him. The parties had planned to ask to return before the Court on November 9, but the Court is unavailable that day. Mr. Tyler is unavailable on November 16. Accordingly, failure to grant the requested continuance would unreasonably deny defendant's counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence, in this case.
2. Given these circumstances, the Court found that the ends of justice served by excluding the period from October 26, 2009, to November 23, 2009, outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Id. at § 3161(h)(7)(A).
3. Accordingly, and with the consent of the defendant, at the hearing on October 26, 2009, the Court ordered that the period from October 26, 2009, to November 23, 2009, be excluded from Speedy Trial Act calculations under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B)(iv).
4. Because the plea agreement previously negotiated by the parties remains before the Court for its consideration, the parties further agree that the time between October 26, 2009, to November 23, 2009, is automatically excluded, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(1)(G), in computing the time within which trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act.
