STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED]
ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS
CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING ) TIME
Date: October 19, 2012
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Judge: Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, WILLIAM WONG, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and COURTNEY FEIN, attorney for ANTHONY MARTINEZ, that the status conference hearing date of October 12, 2012, be rescheduled for a status conference on October 19, 2012, at 9:00 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to review to receive the plea agreement, review the agreement with the client, and continue investigating the facts of the case. Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree that the time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from the date of signing of this order through and including October 19, 2012, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare] and Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation.
UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the October 12, 2012, status conference hearing be continued to October 19, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. Based on the representation of defense counsel and good cause appearing therefrom, the Court hereby finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny defense counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. It is ordered that time up to and including the October 19, 2012 status conference shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this matter must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv) and Local Code T-4, to allow defense counsel reasonable time to prepare.
