UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MARCUS DESHAUN PRIDE,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
ORDER AFTER HEARING
DATE: May 22, 2012 TIME: 9:15 a.m.
This matter came before the Court for Status Conference on April 24, 2012, in the courtroom of the Honorable Lawrence K. Karlton, U.S. District Court Judge. The government, represented by its counsel, Assistant United States Attorney Michele Beckwith for Assistant United States Attorney Jason Hitt, defense counsel for MARCUS DESHAUN PRIDE, Assistant Federal Defender Benjamin D. Galloway, and the defendant were present.
Both counsel requested that the matter be set for a further status conference hearing on May 22, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., to provide the parties an opportunity to work toward a negotiated resolution of this case and to allow the defense sufficient time to complete additional investigation.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter be set for a further status conference hearing on May 22, 2012, at 9:15 a.m..
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(8)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] (Local Code T4), the period from April 24, 2012 to and including May 22, 2012, is excluded from the time computations required by the Speedy Trial Act due to ongoing preparation of counsel.
The Court specifically finds that the ends of justice served by granting of such a continuance outweigh the interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
