UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
LUIS FIGUEROA-ALCAZAR, Defendant
DANNY D. BRACE, JR., #114466, LAW OFFICE OF DANNY D. BRACE, JR., Sacramento, CA, Attorney for Luis Figueroa Alcazar.
STIPULATION REGARDING EXCLUDABLE TIME PERIODS UNDER SPEEDY TRIAL ACT; FINDINGS AND ORDER THEREON
MORRISON C. ENGLAND, Jr., Chief District Judge.
Plaintiff, United States of America, by and through its counsel of record, and the defendant, Luis Figueroa Alcazar, by and through his counsel of record, hereby stipulate as follows:
1. By previous order, this matter was set for status on May 30, 2013.
2. By this stipulation, the defendant now moves to continue the status conference until June 13, 2013, and to exclude time between May 30, 2013 and June 13, 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. The parties represent that defendant would like the continuance in order to enter a
plea. b. Counsel for the defendant desire additional time to consult with his client to
STIP AND ORDER TO EXTEND TIME 1 discuss the entry of plea. Additionally, defense counsel is in trial in Yolo County, California.
c. Counsel for the 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.
d. The government does not object to the continuance.
e. 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 defendants in a trial within the original date prescribed by the Speedy Trial Act.
f. 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 May 30, 2013 to June 13, 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 defendants 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. Respectfully submitted,
In accordance with the foregoing stipulation of the parties and good cause appearing, the status conference in this matter, previously set for May 30, 2013, is hereby continued to June 13, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom No 7.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
