UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF
IRENA GEREZ, DEFENDANT
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon John A Mendez United Sates District Court Judge
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS ORDER
Time: 9:45 AM
Plaintiff United States of America, by and through its counsel of record, and defendant, by and through his counsel of record, hereby stipulate as follows:
1. By previous order, this matter was set for status on November 13, 2012.
2. By this stipulation, defendant now moves to continue the status conference until January 15, 2013 at 9:45 a.m. and to exclude time between, November 13, 2012 2012 and January 15, 2013 under Local Code T4. Plaintiff does not oppose this request.
3. The parties agree and stipulate, and request that the Court find the following:
a. The government has represented that the discovery
associated with this case includes: investigative reports and
related documents in electronic form 1,800 pages of documents.
All of his discovery has been either produced directly to
counsel and/or made available for inspection and copying.
b. Counsel for defendant desires additional time to consult with his/her client, to review the current charges, to conduct investigation and research related to the charges, to review and copy discovery for this matter, to discuss potential resolutions with his client, to prepare pretrial motions, and to otherwise prepare for trial.
c. Counsel for defendant believes that failure to grant the above-requested continuance would deny him the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence.
d. The government does not object to the continuance.
e. Based on the above-stated findings, the ends of justice served by continuing the case as requested outweigh the interest of the public and the defendant in a trial within the original date prescribed by the Speedy Trial Act.
f. For the purpose of computing time under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161, et seq., within which trial must commence, the time period of November 13, 2012 to, January 15, 2013 inclusive, is deemed excludable pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§ 3161(h)(7)(A), B (iv) [Local Code T4] (time to prepare), because it results from a continuance granted by the Court at defendant's request on the basis of the Court's finding that the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
4. Nothing in this stipulation and order shall preclude a finding that other provisions of the Speedy Trial Act dictate that additional time periods are excludable from the period time within which a trial must commence.
