United States District Court, E.D. California.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Charles Carstersen, Defendant, represented by Noa Oren , Federal Public Defender, Eastern District Of California.

USA, Plaintiff, represented by Michele M. Beckwith , United States Attorney's Office.


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

The United States of America, through its counsel, Assistant United States Attorney Michele M. Beckwith, and defendant, Charles Thomas Carstersen, through Assistant Federal Defender, Noa E. Oren, stipulate that the status conference, currently scheduled for July 14, 2017, be continued to September 29, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.

Defense counsel requires additional time to continue reviewing discovery with the defendant and pursue investigation. The discovery in this case consists of more than 10,000 pages of documents, recordings, electronic evidence, reports, and other items.

Based upon the foregoing, the parties agree time under the Speedy Trial Act should be excluded from this order's date through and including September 29, 2017; pursuant to 18 U.S.C. §3161 (h)(7)(A)and (B)(iv)[reasonable time to prepare] and General Order 479, Local Code T4 based upon continuity of counsel and defense preparation.


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 29, 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] and General Order 479, (Local Code T4). It is further ordered the July 14, 2017 status conference shall be continued until September 29, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.
