IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 14, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
STIPULATION AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Plaintiff United States of America and Attorney Shari Rusk, Counsel for Defendant Wendy Johnston, that the status conference scheduled for March 14, 2013, be continued to April 4, 2013.
The request to continue the status conference is made on the ground that pending settlement negotiations between the parties have resulted in amendments to a pending plea agreement. Defense counsel requires additional time to review the revised settlement offer with her client. Both parties agree that an exclusion of time is appropriate under 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv); Local Code T4 (reasonable time to prepare).
Shari Rusk agrees to this request and has authorized Assistant United States Attorney Todd D. Leras to sign this stipulation on her behalf.
