IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
March 19, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
RONALD WAYNE WINFREY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: F.A. Gossett United States Magistrate Judge
This matter is before the court on the unopposed defendant's motion to continue trial  as counsel needs additional time to prepare for trial. The court finds good cause being shown and the trial will be continued. The defendant has complied with NECrimR 12.1(a).
IT IS ORDERED that the motion to continue trial is granted, as follows:
1. The jury trial now set for April 2, 2013 is continued to June 4, 2013.
2. In accordance with 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A), the court finds that the ends of justice will be served by granting this continuance and outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. Any additional time arising as a result of the granting of this motion, that is, the time between today's date and June 4, 2013, shall be deemed excludable time in any computation of time under the requirement of the Speedy Trial Act. Failure to grant a continuance would deny counsel for the defendant the reasonable time necessary for effective preparation, taking into account the exercise of due diligence. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B)(iv).
