IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 22, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
MIGUEL EDWARDO VASQUEZ, JR., DEFENDANT.
TIME EXCLUSION ORDER
The parties appeared before the Court on October 13, 2010. The captioned matter was set for jury trial on January 25, 2011, with trial confirmation hearing on January 4, 2011. The Court also se the matter for further status conference on October 26, 2010 at 9:15 a.m. The defendant has received a plea offer from the government. The continuance is necessary for counsel to adequately review the plea offer with the defendant prior to entry of pleas, if the matter resolves prior to trial. The continuance up to the trial date is necessary for preparation of counsel and to join this defendant with the co-defendant, Jesus Avila, whose case is set for trial commencing on January 25, 2011.
The Court finds that the failure to grant such a continuance would deny the defendant reasonable time for effective and diligent preparation and the interest of justice served by granting this continuance outweighs the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (h)(7)(B)(iv) (local code T-4) and time, therefore, will be excluded from October 13, 2010 through January 25, 2011.
