IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 25, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JOSE GUADALUPE VARGAS-FRIAS,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Dennis L. Beck
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, Bar #89424 Federal Defender ERIC V. KERSTEN, Bar #226429 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant Jose Guadalupe Vargas-Frias
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND ORDER THEREON Date: July 9, 2012 Time: 10:00 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, IAN A. GARRIQUES, Assistant United States Attorney, counsel for plaintiff, and ERIC V. KERSTEN, Assistant Federal Defender, counsel for defendant Jose Guadalupe Vargas-Frias, that the date for status conference in this matter may be continued to July 9, 2012, or the soonest date thereafter that is convenient to the court. The date currently set for status conference is May 29, 2012. The requested new date is July 9, 2012.
Mr. Vargas-Frias has rejected the government's fast-track plea offer in this matter. This continuance is requested to allow time for further defense investigation and preparation in order to determine how best to proceed in this matter. It is anticipated that the defense will request a motion briefing schedule and/or a trial date at the next status conference.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded as necessary for effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv). For this reason, the ends of justice served by the granting of the requested continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
ORDER IT IS SO ORDERED. The intervening period of delay is excluded in the interests of justice pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
