STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, KYLE REARDON, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and CARO MARKS, attorney for NICK VAN BROCKLIN TRAHAN, that the status conference hearing date of July 9, 2010 be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on July 23, 2010 at 9:00 am.
The reason for this continuance is defense counsel has been unexpectedly out of town since June 20, 2010, due to a family medical emergency. More, the defendant is housed in Butte County Jail, often a four hour drive (round trip), and counsel is unable to visit him this week due to the myriad work-related obligations that have arisen in her absence. Counsel needs additional time to meet with the defendant and to review the plea offer with him.
Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree that the time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of signing of this order through and including July 23, 2010 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation.

The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. It is ordered that time up to and including the July 23, 2010 status conference shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be ...
