STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND EXCLUDE TIME
DATE: March 1, 2013
TIME: 9:00 a.m.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto through their respective counsel, MATTHEW SEGAL, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and BENJAMIN D. GALLOWAY, Assistant Federal Defender, attorney for Defendant, ALLAN JAMES JOHNSTON, that the status conference set for Friday, February 22, 2013 be continued to Friday, March 1, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.
The reason for this continuance is to allow defense counsel additional time to review discovery with the defendant, to examine possible defenses and to continue investigating the facts of the case.
The parties stipulate that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
Speedy trial time is to be excluded from the date of this order through the date of the status conference set for March 1, 2013, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(7)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] (Local Code T4).
AGREED: DATED: February 20, 2013 JOSEPH SCHLESINGER Acting Federal Defender /s/ Benjamin Galloway BENJAMIN GALLOWAY Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant DATED: February 20, 2013 BENJAMIN WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Benjamin Galloway for MATTHEW SEGAL Assistant U.S. Attorney Attorney for Plaintiff
The Court, having received, read, and considered the stipulation of the parties, and good cause appearing therefrom, adopts the stipulation of the parties in its entirety as its order. The Court specifically finds that the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds that the ends of justice to be served by granting the requested continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and defendant in a speedy trial.
The Court orders that the time from the date of the parties stipulation, up to and including March 1, 2013, shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv) T4 (reasonable time for counsel to prepare). It is further ordered that the February 22, 2013 status conference shall be continued until March 1, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.
