The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Judge:
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING TIME Date: October 26, 2012 Time: 9:00 a.m.
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 19, 2012, be rescheduled for a status conference/change of plea hearing on October 26, 2012, at 9:00 a.m..
The reason for this continuance is that defense counsel received and reviewed the plea agreement on October 16, 2012. Additional time is required to travel to Butte County to review it with Mr. Martinez..
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 26, 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.
DATED: October 19, 2012. Respectfully submitted, DANIEL J. BRODERICK Federal Public Defender /s/ Courtney Fein COURTNEY FEIN Assistant Federal Defender Designated Counsel for Service Attorney for ANTHONY MARTINEZ DATED: October 19 , 2 0 1 2 . BENJAMIN WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Courtney Fein for WILLIAM WONG Assistant U.S. Attorney Attorney for Plaintiff
UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the October 19, 2012, status conference hearing be continued to October 26, 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 26, 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.
