ORDER CONTINUING TRIAL DATE
JAMES L. ROBART, District Judge.
THIS MATTER came before the Court on the stipulated motion of the parties to continue trial in this matter.
Defendant is charged with one count of Armed Bank Robbery; one count of Brandishing a Firearm in Furtherance of a Crime of Violence; and one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm as an Armed Career Criminal ("ACC"). If Defendant is in fact an ACC and is convicted on all counts, he potentially faces a combined mandatory minimum of 22 years.
As set forth in the motion, the defense needs additional time to review and evaluate the discovery materials produced as to the charged offenses. In addition, the parties need more time to research whether at least one of Defendant's prior convictions does, in fact, count for ACC purposes. Lastly, the parties have received information that Defendant may be a suspect in additional bank robberies, and both parties need additional time to secure the investigative materials as to those allegations and to evaluate the impact on this matter, if any.
Defendant has already filed a written waiver of his speedy trial rights and requests a continuance of the trial date. The government joins in the request.
Based on the foregoing, and being otherwise fully advised, the Court finds and rules as follows:
NOW, THEREFORE, it is hereby:
ORDERED that the trial date is continued from June 26, 2017 to January 3, 2018.
ORDERED that pretrial motions will be filed no later than
ORDERED that the resulting period of delay from the present to January 3, 2018 is hereby excluded for speedy trial purposes pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) and (B).
