IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 25, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DONALD M. WANLAND, JR., DEFENDANT.
ORDER AFTER STATUS CONFERENCE
This matter came before the Court on February 23, 2010, for a status conference. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samantha S. Spangler appeared on behalf of the United States. Attorney Mark Axup appeared for the defendant, who was not present and has a waiver of appearance on file.
Mr. Axup notified the Court that Mr. Wanland is in the process of hiring new counsel but has not done so yet. The Court set a further status conference for March 16, 2010, at 9:15 a.m.
The defendant is directed to be present on that date at that time. The defendant's waiver of personal appearance is hereby REVOKED. Mr. Axup was directed to notify the defendant.
The Court excluded time from the Speedy Trial Act calculation through the new status conference date to allow the defendant to obtain new counsel, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B)(iv) and Local Code T4. The Court finds that the interests of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
