IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 20, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
RAUL OJEDA, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Honorable Anthony W. Ishii
DANIEL J. BRODERICK, #89424 Federal Defender VICTOR M. CHAVEZ, Bar #113752 Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service 2300 Tulare Street, Suite 330 Fresno, California 93721-2226 Telephone: (559) 487-5561 Attorney for Defendant RAUL OJEDA
STIPULATION RESCHEDULING TRIAL DATE; AND ORDER
DATE: October 2, 2012 TIME: 8:30 A.M.
Defendant Raul Ojeda by and through his counsel, Assistant Federal Defender Victor M. Chavez has proposed that the trial presently set to commence on August 28, 2012 be reset to October 2, 2012 at 8:30 A.M., and trial confirmation to September 17, 2012, at 10:00 A.M. The United States by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elana Landau, and Defendant Daniel Diaz, by his counsel Mark W. Coleman, have agreed to this stipulation.
The reason for this Stipulation is that Defendant Raul Ojeda needs additional time to consult with an expert concerning certain evidence and to complete certain investigation. Counsel for Mr. Ojeda believes that completion of such investigation is necessary to presentation of an adequate defense in this case. The defense has not been able to complete its investigation and defense counsel is presently focused on preparation for a trial that will commence August 7, 2012. In addition, this week a plea offer was made to Mr. Ojeda who is housed at Lerdo and this additional time will facilitate plea negotiations.
The parties agree and stipulate as follows:
1. The present trial date of August 28, 2012 may be vacated and a new trial date may be set for October 2, 2012 at 8:30 A.M., with trial confirmation on September 17, 2012 at 10:00 A.M.
2. The purpose of this stipulation is to permit Defendant Ojeda to complete all forensic examination and consultation and investigation necessary to an adequate defense. The time period from the filing of this stipulation to the new trial date on October 2, 2012 is excludable under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and that the interests of justice served by granting this stipulation outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A).
So Stipulated and Agreed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
