ORDER EXTENDING TIME FOR PRELIMINARY HEARING PURSUANT TO RULE 5.1(d) AND EXCLUDING TIME PRELIMINARY HEARING: 10-21-2011
The Court has read and considered the Stipulation for Extension of Time for Preliminary Hearing Pursuant to Rule 5.1(d) and Exclusion of Time, filed by the parties in this matter on October 4, 2011. The Court hereby finds that the Stipulation, which this Court incorporates by reference into this Order, demonstrates good cause for an extension of time for the preliminary hearing date pursuant to Rule 5.1(d) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
Furthermore, for the reasons set forth in the parties' stipulation, the Court finds 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). The Court further finds that the extension of time would not adversely affect the public interest in the prompt disposition of criminal cases.
THEREFORE, FOR GOOD CAUSE SHOWN:
1. The date of the preliminary hearing is extended to October 21, 2011, at 2:00 P.M.
2. The time between October 5, 2011, and October 21, 2011, shall be excluded from calculation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).
3. Defendants shall appear at that date and time before the Magistrate Judge on duty.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
