IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
February 28, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
TINA M. HOGE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas D. Thalken United States Magistrate Judge
This matter is before the court on the oral motion of defendant Tina M. Hoge (Hoge) for an extension of the pretrial motion deadline. The motion was made during the arraignment on the Indictment on February 25, 2013. The government had no objection to the motion. Hoge acknowledged the additional time needed for her motion would be excluded under the calculations under the Speedy Trial Act. The oral motion was granted.
IT IS ORDERED:
1. Hoge's motion for an extension of time to file pretrial motions is granted. Hoge shall have to on or before April 19, 2013, in which to file pretrial motions in accordance with the progression order.
2. The ends of justice have been served by granting such motion 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 motion, i.e., from February 25, 2013, through April 19, 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).
