IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 28, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ERIC JOHN GUANCO,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Morrison C. England Jr.
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar# 89424 Federal Defender BENJAMIN D. GALLOWAY, Bar# 214897 Assistant Federal Defender 801 I Street, 3rd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone (916) 498-5700 Attorney for Defendant ERIC JOHN GUANCO
STIPULATION AND ORDER DATE: September 1, 2011 TIME: 9:00 a.m.
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to between the United States of America through MICHELLE PRINCE, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and defendant, ERIC JOHN GUANCO, by and through his counsel, BENJAMIN GALLOWAY, Assistant Federal Defender, that the status conference set for Thursday, July 28, 2011, be continued to Thursday, September 1, 2011, at 9:00 a.m..
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.
Speedy trial time is to be excluded from the date of this order through the date of the status conference set for September 1, 2011, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161 (h)(7)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] (Local Code T4).
The Court, having received, read, and considered the stipulation of the parties, and good cause appearing therefrom, adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order. Based on the stipulation of the parties and the recitation of facts contained therein, the Court finds that this case is unusual and complex and that it is unreasonable to expect adequate preparation for pretrial proceedings and trial itself within the time limits established in 18 U.S.C. § 3161. The Court specifically finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny both counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting the requested continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and defendant Eric Guanco in a speedy trial.
The Court orders that the time from the date of the parties' stipulation, July 22, 2011, to and including September 1, 2011, shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) T4 (reasonable time for both counsel to prepare). It is further ordered that the July 28, 2011, status conference shall be continued until September 1, 2011, at 9:00 a.m..
