IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 12, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
DONALD M. WANLAND, JR.,
ORDER AFTER STATUS CONFERENCE EXCLUDING TIME
This matter came before the Court on January 11, 2011, for a status conference. Assistant U.S. Attorney Samantha S. Spangler appeared on behalf of the United States. Attorney Kresta N. Daly appeared on behalf of the defendant, who was present. Ms. Daly was appointed to represent the defendant.
The Court vacated the jury trial set for February 15, 2011, and the trial confirming hearing set for January 25, 2011, because of the presence of new defense counsel in the case. A new status conference was scheduled for January 19, 2011 at 9:15 a.m. to give Ms. Daly time to obtain the discovery, begin reviewing it, and discuss the matter with the defendant. The Court warned that the case would soon be back on the trial calendar.
The Court excluded time from the Speedy Trial Act calculation through the new status conference date of January 19, 2011, for obtaining new counsel and preparation of counsel, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B)(iv) and Local Code T4. The Court finds that the interests of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
