IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 9, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JOSE MARIA MARTINEZ-GARCIA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Lawrence J. O'Neill
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 JOSE MARIA MARTINEZ-GARCIA
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE HEARING; ORDER
Date February 27, 2012 Time: 8:30 A.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 February 13, 2012, may be continued to February 27, 2012, at 8:30 A.M.
This continuance is requested by defense counsel. The reason for the request is that the Probation Officer has some preliminary, but inconclusive, information regarding a possible prior conviction that may impact sentencing in this matter. Defense counsel would like the opportunity to review this information before making a recommendation to her client as to how to proceed with respect to a proposed, but indeterminate, offer. AUSA Ian Garriques 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), and that the interest of justice outweighs the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial
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.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Lawrence J. O'Neill UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
