STIPULATION REGARDING EXCLUDABLE TIME PERIODS UNDER SPEEDY TRIAL ACT; FINDINGS AND ORDER
DATE: April 23, 2013 TIME: 9:45 a.m.
Plaintiff, United States of America, by and through its counsel of record, and defendant, Gennadiy Yurkevich by and through his counsel of record, hereby stipulate as follows:
1. By previous order, this matter was set for status on April 23, 2013.
2. By this stipulation, defendant now moves to continue the status conference until July 30, 2013 at 9:45 a.m. and to exclude time between April 23, 2013 and July 30, 2013 under Local Code T4. Plaintiff does not oppose this request.
3. The parties agree and stipulate, and request that the Court find the following: a. Counsel for the government and for the defendant are in the process of attempting to negotiate a disposition of the charges. Both counsel need more time to conduct further investigation and negotiations. Additionally, counsel for defendant has a murder jury trial scheduled at the end May and a pre-paid vacation from June 25, 2013 to July 17, 2013 and will be busy and then out of the country for a number of weeks, making the progress needed on the instant case impossible to accomplish without the requested continuance. b. Counsel for defendant believes that failure to grant the above-requested continuance would deny him the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. c. The government does not object to the continuance. d. 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. e. 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 April 23, 2013 to July 30, 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 defendant's 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 defendant in a speedy trial.
4. Nothing in this stipulation and order shall preclude a finding that other provisions of the Speedy Trial Act dictate that additional time periods are excludable from the period within which a trial must commence. IT IS SO STIPULATED.
