IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 5, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
DAVID CHARLES ZASTROW,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Lawrence J. O'Neill
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE SENTENCING HEARING AND ORDER
Date: August 26, 2011 Time: 10:30 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, BRIAN ENOS, Assistant United States Attorney, and ERIC V. KERSTEN, Assistant Federal Defender, counsel for defendant, David Charles Zastrow, that the date for sentencing may be continued to August 26, 2011, or the soonest date thereafter that is convenient to the court. The date currently set for sentencing is August 19, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. The requested new date is August 26, 2011, at 10:30 a.m. Mr. Zastrow is currently housed in the Kern County Detention Facility. Due to resulting difficulties in communication between Mr. Zastrow and counsel, the defendant's informal objections were not completed until August 3, 2011. The defense is requesting this short continuance*fn1 to allow the United States Probation Office adequate time to respond to the defendant's informal objections. This will permit sentencing to proceed in an orderly manner.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded as necessary for effective defense preparation, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv). For this reason, the ends of justice served by the granting of the requested continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.

The intervening period of delay is excluded in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv). Good cause exists for the continuance as stated in the stipulation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
