CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDE TIME
DATE: April 10, 2012 ) Time: 9:30 a.m.
Defendant, URIEL TORRES, by and through his counsel, DENNIS S. WAKS, Supervising Assistant Federal Defender, and the United States Government, by and through its counsel, PAUL A. HEMESATH, Assistant United States Attorney, hereby stipulate that the status conference set for January 31, 2012, be rescheduled for a status conference on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at 9:30 a.m.
This continuance is being requested because defense counsel requires additional time to review discovery, discuss the case with the government, and pursue investigation.
Speedy trial time is to be excluded from the date of this order through the date of the status conference set for April 10, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(7)(B)(iv), [reasonable time to prepare] (Local Code T4).
The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
Based on the stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court specifically finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Based on these findings and pursuant to the stipulation of the parties, the Court hereby adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order. Time is excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced beginning from the date of the stipulation through and including April 10, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) [reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare] and Local Code T4. A new status conference date is hereby set for April 10, 2012, at 9:30 a.m..
