United States of America v. Alejandro Medina-Prado

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


April 9, 2012

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
ALEJANDRO MEDINA-PRADO,
DEFENDANT.

ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE

The parties appeared before the Court on March 20, 2011, in case number 2:10-CR-0411 LKK. At that time, based upon the representations and agreement of all counsel, the Court ordered that the status conference set for March 20, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., be continued to April 3, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., and that the time beginning March 20, 2012, and extending through April 3, 2012, was excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. 18 U.S.C. § 3161.

The exclusion of time is appropriate due to the defense counsel's need to prepare. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(ii) and (iv); Local Code T4. A continuance is necessary in this case in order to ensure defense counsel has a reasonable amount of time to review the evidence given the limitations imposed by Congress. It is also necessary to ensure defense counsel's effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.

18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4.

ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby ordered that the status conference set for March 20, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., be continued to April 3, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., and that the time beginning March 20, 2012, and extending through April 3, 2012, be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. The Court finds that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
