STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER
TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND TO EXCLUDE TIME
Date: March 30, 2012
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Judge: Garland E. Burrell, Jr.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, William S. Wong, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and Matthew C. Bockmon, Assistant Federal Defender, attorney for Defendant, MARCOS SURITA, that the status conference hearing date of Friday, March 9, 2012, be vacated and a new status conference hearing date of Friday, March 30, 2012, at 9:00 a.m.,be set.
The reason for this continuance is because a plea agreement has been received from the government. Although defense counsel met with the client at the Butte County Jail yesterday, additional time is needed to allow Mr. Surita sufficient time to consider the government's offer and for further attorney-client consult.
It is further stipulated that the time for trial under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of the signing of this order, through and including March 30, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4, and that the ends of justice to be served by granting the continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant to a speedy trial.
Respectfully submitted, DANIEL J. BRODERICK Federal Defender /s/ Matthew C. Bockmon MATTHEW C. BOCKMON Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant MARCOS SURITA Dated: March 7, 2012 BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Matthew C. Bockmon for WILLIAM S. WONG Assistant U.S. Attorney Attorney for Plaintiff
Based on the reasons set forth in the stipulation of the parties filed on March 7, 2012, and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the status conference currently scheduled for Friday, March 9, 2012, be vacated and that the case be set for Friday, March 30, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act is excluded during the time period of today's date, through and including March 30, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4, due to the need to provide defense counsel with the reasonable time to prepare taking into account due diligence.
