IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
February 13, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
MARCOS OTON MORA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas D. Thalken United States Magistrate Judge
This matter is before the court on the motion for an extension of time by defendant Marcos Oton Mora (Mora) (Filing No. 19). Mora seeks an additional thirty days in which to file pretrial motions in accordance with the progression order. Mora has filed an affidavit wherein he consents to the motion and acknowledges he understands the additional time may be excludable time for the purposes of the Speedy Trial Act (Filing No. 20). Upon consideration, the motion will be granted.
IT IS ORDERED:
Defendant Mora's motion for an extension of time (Filing No. 19) is granted. Mora is given until on or before March 15, 2013, in which to file pretrial motions pursuant to the progression order. The ends of justice have been served by granting such motions and outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. The additional time arising as a result of the granting of the motions, i.e., the time between February 13, 2013, and March 15, 2013, shall be deemed excludable time in any computation of time under the requirement of the Speedy Trial Act for the reason defendant's counsel requires additional time to adequately prepare the case, taking into consideration due diligence of counsel, and the novelty and complexity of this case. The failure to grant additional time might result in a miscarriage of justice. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B).
