IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 26, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
ADAN GONZALEZ-VILLEGAS DEFENDANT
AMENDED STIPULATION AND ORDER DATE: August 30, 2010 TIME: 10:00 a.m. JUDGE: Hon. Dammrell
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to between the United States of America through Michele Beckwith, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and the defendant, ADAN GONZALEZ- VILLEGAS by and through his counsel, PREETI K. BAJWA, Attorney at Law, that the status conference set for Monday August 30, 2010 be continued to Monday, October 18, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to review discovery with the defendant, to examine possible defenses and to continue investigating the facts of the case.
Accordingly, the parties believe that the continuance should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The additional time is necessary to ensure effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv); Local Code T4. The interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A).
IT IS SO ORDERED. Time is excluded from today's date through and including October 18, 2010 in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. section 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4.
