STIPULATION AND ORDER
SHEILA K. OBERTO, Magistrate Judge.
It is hereby stipulated and agreed to between the United States of America through VINCENZA RABENN, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and defendant, ROBERT CALDERON, by and through his counsel, DAVID W. DRATMAN, that the hearing of March 20, 2017 be vacated and continued for further hearing to April 24, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. for a status conference regarding Rule 20 proceedings.
This continuance is being requested to provide additional time for the parties to discuss the possibility of a Rule 20 transfer to Sacramento, and for the government to obtain the necessary authorization to do so. Prosecutors in this district have spoken with the Assistant U.S. Attorney in Missouri who is prosecuting the case. That Assistant U.S. Attorney is willing to reach a plea agreement and arrange for transfer of the case under Rule 20 for plea and sentencing in Sacramento. Additionally, counsel for the defense requires additional time to review discovery and negotiate sentencing with the Assistant U.S. Attorney in Missouri.
To afford time to complete the necessary Rule 20 authorizations, review evidence, and complete a plea agreement and sentencing, the parties agree that speedy trial time be excluded from the date of this order through the date of the hearing set for April 24, 2017, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B)(i).
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
