STIPULATED REQUEST TO CONTINUE

STATUS HEARING TO MAY 21, 2013


Date: May 7, 2013

Time: 2:00 p.m.

Court: Hon. William Alsup

The above-captioned matter is set on May 7, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. before this Court for an initial status hearing. Defense counsel, however, has a trial, involving charges of perjury and firearms offenses, set to start on May 6, 2013, and counsel for the United States has a conflicting court appearance on May 7, 2013. Therefore, the parties request that this Court continue the initial status to May 21, 2013 so that counsel for both parties may appear.

The magistrate court had previously excluded the running of the speedy trial clock for effective preparation of counsel, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv), through May 7, 2013. Therefore, the parties now request that the time between May 7, 2013 and May 21, 2013 be excluded from the running of the speedy trial clock for that same reason - effective preparation of counsel, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv). The parties agree that, taking into account the public interest in prompt disposition of criminal cases, good cause exists for this extension due to defense counsel's need to review the discovery in this case. The parties also agree that the ends of justice served by granting such a continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A). SO STIPULATED:

MELINDA HAAG

FRANK BELL


Attorney for Jordan C. Wood


For the reasons stated above, this matter is continued until May 21, 2013, for an initial status hearing. The Court finds that the exclusion of time from May 7, 2013, 2013 through May 21, 2013 is warranted and that the ends of justice served by the continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161 (h)(7)(A). The failure to grant the requested continuance would deny the defendants effective preparation of counsel. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(iv). SO ORDERED.
