IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 15, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JORGE REYES, ET. AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND PROPOSED ORDER Date: November 12, 2010 Time: 9:00 a.m.
Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr.
Defendant Jorge Reyes, through his attorney John Balazs, and the United States, through its attorney Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Beckwith, hereby stipulate and request that the Court vacate the status conference in the above-captioned case on October 15, 2010 and set the matter for a change of plea on November 12, 2010, at 9:00 a.m.
The reason for this request is that defense counsel needs additional time to complete plea negotiations and a final plea agreement. Defense counsel is also on vacation from October 17 to November 2, 2010. For these reasons, the parties stipulate and request that the Court exclude time within which the trial must commence under the Speedy Trial Act from October 15, 2010 through November 12, 2010, for defense preparation under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) (local code T4) and complexity under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(ii) (local code T2). Time has previously been excluded on these grounds through October 15, 2010. The parties also stipulate that the interest of justices served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
