UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA OAKLAND DIVISION
May 12, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DONTE TURNER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Laurel Beeler United States Magistrate Judge
[PROPOSED] ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME UNDER THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
The parties appeared for a status conference on May 11, 2010. The matter was continued to May 17, 2010 for formal arraignment and detention hearing. Defense counsel has to prepare a financial affidavit in order to be appointed by the Court. In addition, the government is in the process of producing discovery. Defense counsel will require time to review the discovery.
Based upon the representation of counsel and for good cause shown, the Court finds that failing to exclude the time between May 11, 2010 and May 17, 2010 would unreasonably deny the government and the defense the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv). The Court further finds that the ends of justice served by excluding the time between May 11, 2010 and May 17, 2010 from computation under the Speedy Trial Act outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Therefore, it is hereby ordered that the time between May 11, 2010 and May 17, 2010 shall be excluded from computation under the Speedy Trial Act. 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
