UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DELILA LOUISE OWENS,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Dennis L. Beck
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 DELILA LOUISE OWENS
Date May 29, 2012 Time: 1:00 P.M.
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS
CONFERENCE HEARING; and ORDER
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 May 29, 2012, at 1:00 P.M.
This continuance is made at the request of defense counsel. Defendant is out of custody. This is a case with voluminous discovery which dates back several years. The defense requires the additional time to review, organize and assess the discovery as well as pursue its own investigation before any meaningful plea negotiations may be had. AUSA Henry Carbajal, counsel for the government, is in agreement with the requested continuance. 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 because the ends of justice served by continuing this case outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial in that additional time is necessary for effective defense preparation. 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv).
ORDER IT IS SO ORDERED. 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.
