STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND TO EXCLUDE TIME
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to by and between the United States of America, through Jason Hitt Assistant U.S. Attorney, and defendant, DARREN BETZ, by and through his counsel, Matthew C. Bockmon, Assistant Federal Defender, that the status conference set for Monday, April 16, 2012, be continued to Monday, May 21, 2012 at 9:30 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to negotiate a resolution to this matter, to investigate the facts of the case and to review and discuss discovery with the defendant.
It is further stipulated that the Court should exclude from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act time from the date of this stipulation, April 11, 2012, through and including May 21, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4. The parties further stipulate and agree that the Court should find that the ends of justice to be served in granting the continuance and allowing the defendant further time to prepare outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant to a speedy trial.

Based on the reasons set forth in the stipulation of the parties filed on April 11, 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 date of Monday, April 16, 2012, be vacated and that the case be set for Monday, May 21, 2012, at 9:30 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, for the reasons stated in the parties' April 11, 2012, stipulation, the time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act is excluded during the time period of April 11, 2012, through and including May 21, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161(h)(7)(A) and (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.
