IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 21, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JOSE LUIS VALENCIA-MENDOZA, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
ORDER EXCLUDING TIME UNDER THE SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
Defendants Valencia-Mendoza, Valencia, Zarate, and Medrano appeared before the Court on December 7, 2010 at 9:15 a.m. (Defendant Barrajas did not appear.) The government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel S. McConkie. Defendant Valencia-Mendoza was represented by Lori Teichert; defendant Valencia was represented by J. Tony; defendant Zarate was represented by J. Tony; defendant Medrano was represented by Preciliano Martinez.
Defendant Valencia pleaded guilty. The parties are continuing to work toward a resolution of the case and to conduct additional investigation and prepare for trial. At the request of the government and defendants Valencia-Mendoza, Zarate, and Medrano, the status conference was continued until December 21, 2010. The government was ordered to prepare a proposed order.
Accordingly, the Court finds that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial, 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161
(h)(7)(B)(iv) and time, therefore, will be excluded from December 7, 2010 through December 21, 2010.
