STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING SENTENCING
FROM February 22, 2013 TO April 9, 2013
The United States of America, through its counsels of record, Benjamin B. Wagner, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California, and Todd Leras, Assistant United States Attorney, and defendant Bob An, through his attorney, Ronald Peters, Esq, hereby stipulate and agree that the judgment and sentencing hearing scheduled for February 19, 2013, at 9:45 am should be continued to April 9, 2013 at 9:45 a.m.
After discussions with the probation office and United States Attorney the presentence report could not be timely completed due to the need to collect additional information by all parties involved. This has also been complicated because the defendant requires the services of an interpreter whose availability is limited due to the number of non English speaking co-defendants.
Parties agree that time should be excluded pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(B)(iv), and Local Code T-4 - reasonable time to prepare and for continuity of counsel. The parties agree that time be excluded under this provision from February 19, 2013, to and including April 9, 2013.

For the reasons stipulated by the parties, the Court finds that the interest of justice served by granting the requested continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. 3161(h)(8)(A), (h)(8)(B)(iv).
