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 ALEX ZAVALA-TAPIA
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER
DATE: October 31, 2011 TIME: 9:30 a.m.
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to between the United States of America through SAMUEL WONG, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and defendant, ALEX ZAVALA-TAPIA by and through his counsel, BENJAMIN GALLOWAY, Assistant Federal Defender, that the status conference set for Monday, October 17, 2011 be continued to Monday, October 31, 2011 at 9:30 a.m..
The parties have reached a resolution in this matter. The requested continuance will allow the parties time to finalize and submit the necessary documents to the court, and to review those documents with the defendant.
It is further stipulated that the time period from the date of this stipulation, October 14, 2011, through and including the date of the new status conference hearing, October 31, 2011, 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)&(B)(iv)and Local Code T4 [reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare] as defense counsel needs to explain the ramifications of the proposed resolution to his client.
Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing therefrom, 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 specifically finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Based on these findings and pursuant to the stipulation of the parties, the Court hereby adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order. Time is excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced beginning from the date of the stipulation, October 14, 2011, through and including October 31, 2011, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) [reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare] and Local Code T4. A new status conference date is hereby set for October 31, 2011, at 9:30 a.m..
