IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 13, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
AARON LEWIS GAUDINIER,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Sheila K. Oberto
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND ORDER THEREON
Date: February 19, 2013 Time: 1:00
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, DAVID L GAPPA, Assistant United States Attorney, counsel for plaintiff, and ERIC V. KERSTEN, Assistant Federal Defender, counsel for defendant Aaron Lewis Gaudinier, that the date for status conference in this matter may be continued to February 19, 2013, or the soonest date thereafter that is convenient to the court. The date currently set for status conference is December 17, 2012. The requested new date is February 19, 2013.
The defendant is charged with the possession of illegal images and videos that were located on a computer hard drive. The defense has retained an expert to conduct a forensic examination of the hard drive at issue; however, given the holidays and prior commitments of the expert it will not be possible for the examination to be completed before early February 2013. This continuance is requested to allow time for completion of the forensic evaluation and discussion of the results with the defendant prior to the next status conference. The government does not object to this defense request for a continuance.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded as necessary for effective defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv). For this reason, the ends of justice served by the granting of the requested continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.

The parties shall be prepared to select a mutually acceptable trial date at the February 19, 2013, status conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
