UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MUNTU LAVAR WILLIAMS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXCLUDE TIME
The parties request that the status conference in this case be continued from July 7, 2011 to July 14, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. for a further status conference and possible change of plea. They stipulate that the time between July 7, 2011 and July 14, 2011 should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The parties stipulate that the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, so that counsel for the defendant may have reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv). Specifically, 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. The parties stipulate and agree that 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)(7)(A).
