IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 5, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MARIANO MONTENEGRO VALLEJO,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Lawrence K. Karlton
AMENDED STIPULATION AND ORDER; CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING
TIME Date: January 23, 2013 Time: 9:15 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, PAUL HEMESATH, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and COURTNEY FEIN, attorney for MARIANO MONTEGNEGRO VALLEJO, that the status conference date of November 6, 2012, be vacated, and the matter be set for status conference on January 23, 2013, at 9:15 a.m.
The reason for the continuance is that counsel is currently occupied with the civil forfeiture matters associated with the criminal case, and in addition further discussions with Mr. Vallejo regarding the criminal case will be necessary.
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 January 23, 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.
The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting a continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
DATED: November 6, 2012. Respectfully submitted, DANIEL J. BRODERICK Federal Public Defender /s/ Courtney Fein COURTNEY FEIN Designated Counsel for Service Attorney for MARIANO VALLEJO BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Courtney Fein for PAUL HEMESATH Assistant United States Attorney
UPON GOOD CAUSE SHOWN and the stipulation of all parties, it is ordered that the November 6, 2012, status conference hearing be continued to January 23, 2013, at 9:15 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 January 23, 2013 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.
