Time is to be excluded under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(b)(iv) (Local Rule T4) as the ends of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.

Additionally, defense counsel needs additional time to explain the terms of the plea agreement to Mr. Leon.
Accordingly, the parties jointly request that a change of plea hearing be scheduled for April 24, 2012 at 9:00am before Magistrate Judge Dale A. Drozd.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
