STIPULATION AND ORDER TO RESET STATUS CONFERENCE
Defendant Laura Garcia, by and through appointed counsel, Krista Hart, and the United States of America (government), by and through Assistant United States Attorney Jill M. Thomas, stipulate and agree that the status conference currently set for July 23, 2010, should be vacated and reset to July 30, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. for a change of plea hearing.
The parties stipulate and agree the time from July 23, 2010, up to and including July 30, 2010, should be excluded in computing the time within which the trial of the above criminal prosecution must commence for purposes of the Speedy Trial Act. The parties stipulate that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the government and the defendant may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) (Local Code T4).
The parties have been in active negotiations in an attempt to resolve the case short of going to trial. It appears the parties have reached a resolution and it is anticipated that Ms. Garcia will plead guilty on July 30, 2010.
Respectfully submitted, DATED: July 22, 2010 Krista Hart Attorney for Laura Garcia
