United States of America v. Blanca Silva

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


June 28, 2012

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
BLANCA SILVA, DEFENDANT.

ORDER FOLLOWING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME

The Court held a status conference in this case on June 26, 2012. Assistant United States Attorney Jason Hitt appeared on behalf of the United States of America and appointed counsel Clemente Jimenez, Esq., appeared on behalf of defendant Blanca SILVA. The defendant was present in custody using the Spanish-language interpreter.

During the hearing, counsel for the defendant requested a continuance of the case in order to provide Mr. Jimenez additional time to review the considerable discovery in this case and, in particular, recent discovery produced that responded to a defense discovery request. In addition, the parties represented that they were engaged in ongoing plea discussions and a plea agreement could potentially be reached in the next couple of weeks. The Court granted the request of the parties and ordered the matter be placed on calendar on July 24, 2012, at 9:15 a.m. for further status conference. The Court further found that the time between June 26, 2012, and July 24, 2012, should be excluded from calculation of the Speedy Trial Act because Mr. Jimenez needs time to review the discovery in this case and meet with his client to assist in ongoing defense of her case. The Court therefore found that time between June 26, 2012, and July 24, 2012, should be excluded under the Speedy Trial Act because the ends of justice are served by the Court excluding such time, and agreed that the interests of justice served by granting this continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial so that Mr. Jimenez could have reasonable time to prepare an effective defense in this case, taking into account the exercise of due diligence the in the interests of justice under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4.

Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

(1) A further status conference in this case is set for July 24, 2012, at 9:15 a.m.; and

(2) Time is excluded from calculation under the Speedy Trial Act up to, and including, July 24, 2012, at 9:15 a.m. because the interests of justice are served by granting this continuance and outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4.
