IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 12, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
FRANKIE THOMAS GOULDING, ET AL. DEFENDANTS,
ORDER REGARDING EXCLUDABLE TIME PERIODS UNDER SPEEDY TRIAL ACT
A status conference was held on January 29, 2013. All parties were present. At the status conference, the parties agreed to set an additional status conference on March 19, 2013, excluding time under Local Code T4 up to and including March 19, 2013. Counsel for the defendants represented that they desired additional time to consult with their clients and conduct additional investigation, as well as to conduct negotiations with the government and prepare for a possible jury trial.
Based on the above-stated findings, the ends of justice served by continuing the case as requested outweigh the interest of the public and the defendant in a trial within the original date prescribed by the Speedy Trial Act. For the purpose of computing time under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161, et seq., within which trial must commence, the time period of January 29, 2013 to March 19, 2013, inclusive, is deemed excludable pursuant to 18 U.S.C.§ 3161(h)(7)(A), (B)(iv) [Local Code T4] because it results from a continuance granted by the Court at the parties' request on the basis of the Court's finding that the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interest of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.
FOR GOOD CAUSE SHOWN, IT IS SO FOUND AND ORDERED this 10th day of April, 2013.
