Case No. 2:13-cr-164 GEB.


United States District Court, E.D. California.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Sean Erin Karjala, Defendant, represented by Benjamin David Galloway , Office Of The Federal Public Defender.

USA, Plaintiff, represented by Heiko Philipp Coppola , United States Attorney's Office.


GARLAND E. BURRELL, Jr., Senior District Judge.

IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Phillip A. Talbert, United States Attorney, through Heiko Coppola, Assistant United States Attorney, attorney for Plaintiff, and Heather Williams, Federal Defender, through Assistant Federal Defender Benjamin D. Galloway, attorneys for Sean Erin Karjala, that the status conference scheduled for June 16, 2017 be vacated and continued to September 15, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.

Defense counsel requires additional time to review discovery with the defendant and pursue investigation, as well as continue negotiations toward a non-trial disposition. Additionally, Mr. Karjala is being housed in Trinity County where he is facing a state court prosecution and a potential sentence of life in prison. The parties are working to simultaneously resolve this case and the matter now pending in Trinity County Superior Court. Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded of this order's date through and including September 15, 2017; pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare], General Order 479, Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation and Local Code M (trial in another court).


IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, the Court, having received, read, and considered the parties' stipulation, and good cause appearing therefrom, adopts the parties' stipulation in its entirety as its order. The Court specifically finds the failure to grant a continuance in this case would deny counsel reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. The Court finds the ends of justice are served by granting the requested continuance and outweigh the best interests of the public and defendant in a speedy trial.

The Court orders the time from the date the parties stipulated, up to and including September 15, 2017, shall be excluded from computation of time within which the trial of this case must be commenced under the Speedy Trial Act, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and(B)(iv) [reasonable time for counsel to prepare], General Order 479, (Local Code T4) and Local Code M (trial in another court). It is further ordered the June 16, 2017 status conference shall be continued until September 15, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.
