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 ISRAEL HIDALGO
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE HEARING; ORDER
Date February 13, 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 in the above-entitled matter scheduled for January 9, 2012, may be continued to February 13, 2012, at 1:00 P.M.
This continuance is requested by counsel for the defendant. The defense has requested from the government additional discovery which may impact any proposed plea agreement and/or sentencing issues. The government has requested the sought-after discovery from outside agencies, including the Mexican Consulate in Mazatlan. The requested continuance should provide sufficient time for the information to be received by the government and forwarded to the defense. Counsel will then need time to review and discuss the discovery with client, who is presently housed at the Lerdo Detention Facility, before any productive hearing can be had. AUSA Michele Thielhorn 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 in the interests of justice, including but not limited to, the need for the period of time set forth herein for further defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B).
For the reasons set forth above, the continuance requested is granted for good cause and the Court finds the interest of justice outweighs the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
