STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Plaintiff United States of America, by and through Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras, and Attorney Michael Hansen on behalf of Defendant David Avila-Sandoval, Attorney Kyle Knapp on behalf of Defendant Tomas Sotelo, and Attorney Clemente Jimenez on behalf of Defendant Israel Deltoro-Loza, that the status conference scheduled for October 30, 2012, be continued to December 4, 2012, at 9:15 a.m.
The parties are continuing to work toward resolution of the case and need additional time to discuss revisions to pending or proposed plea agreements and the potential guidelines applicable to each defendant. To accomplish this process all parties are continuing with investigation in this case, which involves three separate rounds of wiretap interceptions containing voluminous telephone calls and transcripts. All parties therefore request to continue the status conference to December 4, 2012. For the above-stated reasons, the parties stipulate 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). Defense counsel have authorized Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd D. Leras to sign this stipulation on their behalf.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. A status conference in this matter is set for December 4, 2012, at 9:15 a.m., as to Defendants Deltoro-Loza, Avila Sandoval, and Sotelo;
2. Based on the stipulation of the parties, 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 under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) and Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare) up to and including December 4, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED
