IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 1, 2012
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 ANN H. VORIS, Bar #100433 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
Date: February 27, 2012 Time: 1:00 p.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel that the status conference in the above-captioned matter now set for February 6, 2012, may be continued to February 27, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. for a change of plea hearing.
This is a Rule 20 case. Defendant was previously represented by Ms. Walcott. The reason for the continuance is: First, that travel is very difficult for Mr. Hammond; Second, the prosecutor is preparing a plea offer, but it cannot be reviewed before Monday; Third, the prosecutor will be out of the office and will not return until February 21, 2012, and Mr. Hammond is expecting to enter a plea. This continuance will permit negotiation and completion of the plea and conserve time and resources for both parties 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 effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A), (B)(ii), and (iv).
Time is excluded pursuant to §§ 3161(h)(7)(A), (B)(ii), and (iv). Good Cause for the continuance is stated, and the request is therefore GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Lawrence J. O'Neill UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
