UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 14, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
ROBERT EDWARD BARR,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Anthony W. Ishii
BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney BRIAN W. ENOS Assistant United States Attorney United States Courthouse 2500 Tulare Street, Suite 4401 Fresno, California 93721 Telephone: (559) 497-4000 Facsimile: (559) 497-4099 Attorneys for the United States of America
STIPULATION TO VACATE MARCH 19, 2012 STATUS CONFERENCE AND SET
APRIL 23, 2012 CHANGE OF PLEA HEARING; ORDER
Date: April 23, 2012
Time: 10:00 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, through their respective attorneys of record, that the status conference currently set to be heard in Courtroom Two at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, March 19, 2012 be vacated, and an April 23, 2012 change of plea hearing be set at the same time and place.
The parties base this stipulation on good cause. Specifically, the parties have negotiated a resolution in this case, which will culminate in defendant changing his plea to Count One in the indictment from not guilty to guilty at the requested change of plea hearing as specified above. Defendant requests that this hearing take place on April 23, 2012, because he must first tend to completing one or more previously scheduled appointments regarding medical issues that may prove relevant at sentencing. The parties note that they anticipate defendant will plead guilty to Count One in the indictment at the requested change of plea hearing without a formal plea agreement.
For the above-stated reason, the stipulated vacating of next week's status conference and setting of the April 23, 2012 change of plea hearing will also conserve time and resources for both parties and the court, and the interests of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh defendant's and the public's speedy trial rights pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and 3161(h)(7)(B)(ii).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
