The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr.
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender CARO MARKS, Bar #159267 Designated Counsel for Service 801 I Street, 3rd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 498-5700 Attorney for Defendant RAUL MORENO-LORENZO
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, MICHELE BECKWITH, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and CARO MARKS, attorney for RAUL MORENO-LORENZO, that the status conference hearing date of December 2, 2011 be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on January 27, 2012 at 9:00 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow the defendant time to pursue a resolution under section 5K1.1 of the sentencing guidelines, which process takes time. Especially during the holiday season it may be impossible or impractical to arrange the debriefings required for such a departure, so the parties need additional time for this reason. 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 January 27, 2012 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 December 2, 2011, status conference hearing be continued to January 27, 2012, at 9:00 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 defendant in a speedy trial. It is ordered that time up to and including the January 27, 2012 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.
