IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 15, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
FREDERICK SCOTT SALYER
ORDER EXCLUDING TIME
On September 23, 2011, the Court found the time between September 23, 2011 and April 17, 2012 should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A). First, as the filings in this case demonstrate, this case is legally and factually complex due to the nature of the prosecution, such that it is unreasonable to expect adequate preparation for pretrial proceedings or the trial itself within the time limits established by the Speedy Trial Act. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(ii). Second, failure to continue the trial to April 17, 2011 would unreasonably deny the Defendant continuity of counsel, whose schedule was considered when the Court set the trial date for April 17, 2012. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv).
Therefore, 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).
