IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 11, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
RONALD SCOTT ROUFS,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge
STIPULATION TO CONTINUE STATUS CONFERENCE; ORDER THEREON Date: June 3, 2013 Time: 1:00 p.m. Dept Hon. Sheila K. Oberto
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between the parties hereto, and through their respective attorneys of record herein, that the status conference hearing in the above-referenced action now scheduled for April 15, 2013, may be continued to June 3, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.
The parties request this continuance for additional time to negotiate a resolution in this case. Mr. Roufs is coming from the Lerdo jail, which will prevent defense counsel from discussing the recent plea offer prior to the currently-scheduled status conference. The requested continuance will conserve time and resources for all parties and the Court.
The parties agree that the delay resulting from the continuance shall be excluded in the interests of justice, including but not limited to, the need for the period of time set forth herein for further plea negotiation and defense preparation pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B).

O'Neill on or before June 3, 2013 at 8:30 a.m.
