June 22, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
BRUCE LEE CEARLOCK, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney KYLE REARDON Assistant U.S. Attorney 501 I Street, Suite 10-100 Sacramento, California 95814 Telephone: (916) 554-2700
CONTINUING TRIAL STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER
Time: 9:00 a.m. Date: Friday, June 22, 2012
Court: Hon. Garland E. Burrell
The parties request that the trial confirmation hearing set for Friday, June 22, 2012, at 9:00 a.m., and the trial set for July 10, 2012, be vacated, and request that this matter be set for a status conference on Friday, July 20, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. The Court previously excluded time until July 10, 2012. The parties stipulate that this previously granted exclusion of time under Local Code T4 should be continued, and that the time between the granting of the parties' requested order and July 20, 2012, should be excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act. 18 U.S.C. § 3161.
Both parties need additional time to investigate and adequately prepare. Specifically, an issue has arisen with the potential loss amount in this case that impacts both parties. Resolution of this issue will impact plea negotiations and how the parties ultimately proceed. In addition, Defense Counsel needs additional time to review the defendant's entire case file in order to properly advise his client.
Accordingly, the parties believe that time should continue to be excluded under the Speedy Trial Act until July 20, 2012. The additional time is necessary to ensure effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4. 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).
The trial confirmation hearing currently set for June 22, 2012, and the trial date currently set for July 10, 2012, in case number 2:11-CR-00182 GEB, are vacated. The matter is set for a further status conference on Friday, July 20, 2012, at 9:00 a.m., and the time between the filing of this order and July 20, 2012, is excluded from the calculation of time under the Speedy Trial Act in accordance with 18 U.S.C. § 3161 and Local Code T4. The interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
