IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 7, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
TIME RYAN MCGOWAN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDING
This matter came before the Court for a status conference on October 10, 2012, at 9:15 a.m. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorneys William S. Wong and Michael D. Anderson. Defendants Snellings and Early were personally present and represented, respectively, by Attorneys James Goodwin and Ralph Hughes. Attorney James Jeffery Goodwin appeared for defendant McGowan, who was not present and had a waiver of personal appearance on file.
During the October 10, 2012, status conference, defense counsel stated that additional time was necessary to review discovery and conduct necessary preparation of their clients' defenses. The discovery in this case includes 28 compact discs provided by the government. Defense counsel further requested that the case be continued and that time be excluded under the Speedy Trial Act. All defendants agreed.
At the parties' request, the Court ordered the status conference continued to January 8, 2013, at 9:15 a.m. The Court further ordered that time be excluded under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare). The Court directed government counsel to prepare a formal order.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. A status conference in this case is set for January 8, 2013, at 9:15 a.m. as to defendants McGowan, Snellings and Early.
2. Based on the parties' representations, the Court finds that the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. Accordingly, time under the Speedy Trial Act shall be excluded through January 8, 2013, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B)(iv); Local Code T-4, to allow reasonable time for defense counsel to prepare for trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED
