IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 17, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ALVINO SALMERON, IVAN LEYVA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. William B. Shubb
Date: February 21, 2012
Time: 8:30 a.m.
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER
IT IS STIPULATED by and among Assistant United States Attorney Daniel S. McConkie, Jr., Counsel for Plaintiff, Assistant Federal Defender Jeffrey L. Staniels, Counsel for Defendant Ivan Leyva, and Thomas A. Johnson, counsel for Defendant Alvino Salmeron, that the status conference currently scheduled for February 21, 2012, be vacated and continued until March 12, 2012, for further status conference.
This continuance is requested to permit further defense preparation and continuity of counsel, and particularly to continue ongoing efforts to reach mutually acceptable terms for resolution of the case without trial. The court is advised that counsel have conferred about such terms and need to consult with clients about the current status of terms. This effort needs more planning and coordination among counsel since the clients are housed to the Nevada County jail.
IT IS FURTHER STIPULATED that time for trial under the Speedy Trial Act be excluded from February 21, 2012, through and including March 12, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv), Local Code T-4 (defense preparation and continuity of counsel)
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
Dated: February 17, 2012 /S/ Daniel S. McConkie DANIEL S. MCCONKIE, JR. Assistant U.S. Attorney Counsel for Plaintiff Dated: February 17, 2012 /S/ Jeffrey L. Staniels JEFFREY L. STANIELS Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant IVAN LEYVA Dated: February 17, 2012 /S/ Thomas A. Johnson THOMAS A. JOHNSON Attorney for Defendant
Based on the representations of counsel that further preparation and consultation is needed before trial or non-trial resolution can occur, the court finds that the interests of justice served by granting additional time as requested by counsel until March 12, 2012,, outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.
The request for a continuance is therefore GRANTED, and time for trial under the Speedy Trial Act is excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(B)(iv), Local Code T-4, from February 21, 2012 until March 12, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
