DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender MATTHEW M. SCOBLE, Bar #237432 Designated Counsel for Service 801 I Street, 3rd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 498-5700 Attorney for Defendant CHRISTOPHER TABOR
Date: October 17, 2011 Time: 8:30 a.m.
ORDER; STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, JASON HITT, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and attorney PETER KMETO, Counsel for JASPREET DHADDA, and attorney MATTHEW SCOBLE, Counsel for CHRISTOPHER TABOR, and attorney MICHAEL BIGELOW, Counsel for JAIME MAROTTE that the status conference hearing date of August 22, 2011 be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on October 17, 2011 at 8:30 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to review discovery with the defendants, to examine possible defenses and to continue investigating the facts of the case.
Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree that the time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of signing of this order through and including October 17, 2011 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation.
ORDER UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the August 22, 2011, status conference hearing be continued to October 17, 2011, at 8:30 a.m. Based on the representation of defense counsel and good cause appearing there from, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defense 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 a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. It is ordered that time up to and including the October 17, 2011 status conference shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) and Local Code T-4, to allow defense counsel reasonable time to prepare.
