IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 15, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MICHAEL DEEDS HAMMOND,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Lawrence J. O'Neill
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, #89424 Federal Defender MELODY M. WALCOTT, Bar #219930 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant MICHAEL DEEDS HAMMOND
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS
CONFERENCE TO DECEMBER 19, 2011 AND
Date: February 6, 2012 Time: 1:00 P.M.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, and through their respective attorneys of record herein, that the status conference currently scheduled for December 19, 2011 at 1:00 P.M., be continued to February 6, 2012 at 1:00 P.M. This continuance is requested to allow further defense preparation and plea negotiations. Mr. Hammond's case was transferred to this district from the District of West Virginia pursuant to Rule 20, Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. Counsel are meeting with local and out-of-state authorities to resolve the matter. It is therefore anticipated the case will be resolved. The requested continuance will conserve time and resources for both counsel and the Court. Assistant United States Attorney Laurel Montgomery does not object to this request.
The parties agree that time shall be excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B) in that the ends of justice served by the continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial, since the failure to grant such a continuance would deny counsel for the defendant the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
ORDER Good Cause exists. Time is hereby excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Lawrence J. O'Neill UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
