IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 15, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
LUIS MIGUEL GARCIA-CHAVEZ AND BERNARDO GONZALEZ, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Garland E. Burrell
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE AND
TIME: 9:00 a.m.
DATE: May 10, 2013
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to between the United States of America through JASON HITT, Assistant U.S. Attorney; defendant LUIS MIGUEL GARCIA-CHAVEZ by and through his counsel, BENJAMIN GALLOWAY, Assistant Federal Defender; and defendant BERNARDO GONZALEZ, by and through his counsel, TONI CARBONE, that the status conference set for Friday, March 15, 2013 be continued to Friday, May 10, 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 May 10, 2013, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(7)(B)(iv) [reasonable time to prepare] (Local Code T4).
DATED: March 13, 2013 Respectfully submitted, JOSEPH SCHLESINGER Acting Federal Defender /s/ Benjamin Galloway BENJAMIN GALLOWAY Assistant Federal Defender Attorney for Defendant LUIS MIGUEL GARCIA-CHAVEZ /s/ Toni Carbone TONI CARBONE Attorney for Defendant BERNARDO GONZALEZ DATED: March 13, 2013 BENJAMIN B. WAGNER United States Attorney /s/ Benjamin Galloway for JASON HITT 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 May 10, 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 March 15, 2013 status conference shall be continued until May 10, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.
