IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 1, 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 JUAN SOLORIO-MENDOZA
Date January 17, 2012 Time: 1:00 P.M.
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS
CONFERENCE HEARING; ORDER
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, and through their respective attorneys of record herein, that the status conference in the above-entitled matter scheduled for December 5, 2011, may be continued to January 17, 2012, at 1:00 P.M.
This continuance is made at the request of defense counsel due to on-going discovery and investigation. Since the last status conference, the government attempted to locate discovery sought by defense counsel. An additional report was provided by the government to defense counsel today. That report appears to reference additional discovery which has not yet been provided. The time requested will allow for the AUSA to confer with the relevant agencies to determine if the additional discovery sought exists and to provide it to defense counsel. Once received, the discovery will need to be reviewed by defense counsel and discussed with her client, who is currently housed in Lerdo.
The specific items sought bear directly on admissions sought by the government in a proposed plea agreement and which could significantly alter the defendant's exposure in this case. AUSA Henry Carbajal has no objection to this request. 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).
United States District Court
IT IS SO ORDERED.
