IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 1, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DONALD M. WANLAND, JR., DEFENDANT.
ORDER AFTER STATUS CONFERENCE EXCLUDING TIME
This matter came before the Court on May 25, 2010, for a status conference. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samantha S. Spangler appeared on behalf of the United States. Attorney Joseph Wiseman appeared for the defendant, who was not present and has a waiver of appearance on file.
The Court set a jury trial for February 15, 2011, and a trial confirming hearing for January 25, 2011, at 9:15 a.m. Counsel for the parties indicated they intend to continue to negotiate with a goal of a disposition short of trial. If such disposition is reached, counsel will contact the Court's Courtroom Deputy Clerk to schedule the matter on the Court's calendar.
The Court excluded time from the Speedy Trial Act calculation through the trial date for preparation and continuity of counsel, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B)(iv) and Local Code T4, because the scheduled trial date is the first available date for defense counsel. 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.
