ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
This matter came before the Court for a status conference on August 28, 2012, at 9:15 a.m. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras. Defendants were personally present. Attorney Michael Hansen appeared for Defendant Avila-Sandoval, Attorney Kyle Knapp appeared for Defendant Sotelo, and Attorney Clemente Jimenez appeared for Defendant Israel Deltoro-Loza.
The parties informed the Court that they are working toward resolution of the case and need additional time to discuss revisions to pending or proposed plea agreements. All parties therefore requested to continue the status conference to October 2, 2012. Based on the representations of the parties, the Court further ordered that time be excluded under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare and continuity of counsel). The Court directed government counsel to prepare a formal order.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. A status conference in this matter is set for October 2, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., as to Defendants Deltoro-Loza, Avila Sandoval, and Sotelo;
2. Based on the parties' representations, the Court finds that the ends of justice outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. Accordingly, time under the Speedy Trial Act shall be excluded through October 2, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED
