IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 21, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JESSY AVERHARDT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER AFTER HEARING CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE DATE EXCLUDING TIME UNDER THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
The parties appeared before the court on January 20, 2010. Defendant Warren Shortt needs additional time to submit to a psychological evaluation and receive the results. Attorneys for defendants Averhart and Stanley Shortt joined in the request and each defendant expressly waived time under the Speedy Trial Act. The United States, through Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary L. Grad and the defendants Jessy Averhardt, Warren Shortt and Stanley Shortt, through their respective counsels of record, agreed that April 6, 2010 at 9:15 a.m. was an appropriate date to which the status conference should be continued. The parties are also discussing a possible resolution of the case. The parties further agreed that 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)(7)(B)(iv) (local code T-4) and time, therefore, will be excluded from January 20, 2010 through April 6, 2010.
