IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 5, 2012
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 VICTOR M. CHAVEZ, Bar #113752 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant RAMON LOPEZ-TAPIA
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE HEARING; ORDER
Date: February 6, 2012
Time: 1:00 p.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, through their respective counsel of record that the status conference hearing in the above captioned matter scheduled for January 9, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. may be continued to February 6, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.
Counsel for Mr. Lopez-Tapia seeks this stipulation as he will be out of the office on annual leave on the current status conference date. The government has made a plea offer but it has not yet been presented to the defendant. The defendant is housed at the Lerdo jail. This additional time will also allow defense counsel to discuss the government's offer with the defendant.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded in the interests of justice herein and for effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and 3161(h)(7)(B)(i) and (iv) because the ends of justice served in granting such continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
Good Cause exists. Time is excluded.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Lawrence J. O'Neill UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
