IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 31, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Lawrence J. O'Neill
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender RACHEL W. HILL, Bar #151522 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant SHANTANNA HARRISON
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE HEARING; AND ORDER DATE: October 21, 2011 TIME: 8:45 A.M.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, and through their respective attorneys of record herein, that the status conference hearing in the above-entitled matter scheduled for September 2, 2011, may be continued to October 21, 2011, at 8:45 a.m., and set for a change of plea.
The continuance is requested due to a combination of factors. The government and the defense are finalizing the specifics of a plea agreement, the defendant will be traveling from Louisiana and needs sufficient time to arrange for reasonably affordable transportation, and defense counsel is scheduled to be out of state from September 23 through October 7, 2011. Therefore, the 1st Friday upon which the availability of both counsel can reasonably be assured is the 28th of October, 2011. The requested continuance will conserve time and resources for both counsel and the court.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded because the ends of justice served by continuing this case outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial in that additional time is necessary for effective defense preparation. 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv).
Good cause exists. Time is excluded for the reasons stated in the stipulation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Lawrence J. O'Neill UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
