STIPULATION REGARDING EXCLUDABLE TIME PERIODS UNDER SPEEDY TRIAL ACT (PROPOSED) FINDINGS AND ORDER
Plaintiff, United States of America, by and through its counsel of record, and the defendant, MARK ALLEN CLINE, by and through his counsel of record, hereby stipulate as follows:
1. By previous order, this matter was set for status on November 30, 2012.
2. By this stipulation, the defendant now moves to continue the status conference until January 18, 2013, and to exclude time between November 30, 2012, and January 18, 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. Counsel for the defendant desires additional time to consult with the child pornography expert who is currently reviewing defendant's hard drives and media at the Sacramento Valley High Tech Crimes Task Force.
b. Additionally, defense counsel is currently in Sutter Hospital after suffering a ruptured appendix on approximately November 18, 2012, with surgery performed November 20, 2012. Defense counsel will not be medically cleared for work for approximately four (4) weeks after his release.
c. Counsel for the defendants believe 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 defendants in a trial within the original date prescribed by the Speedy Trial Act.
e. 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 30, 2012, to January 18, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. inclusive, is deemed excludable pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§ 3161(h)(7)(A), B(iv) [Local Code T4] 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 defendants 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 within which a trial must commence.
