United States v. Garcia-Cerrato

United States District Court, Eighth Circuit

August 5, 2013

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
OSVIN JAVIER GARCIA-CERRATO, Defendant.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

CHERYL R. ZWART, District Judge.

Defendant has moved to continue the trial currently set for August 13, 2013. (Filing No. 21). As explained in the motion, the defendant needs additional time to investigate this case and review discovery. The motion to continue is unopposed. Based on the showing set forth in the motion, the court finds the motion should be granted. Accordingly,

IT IS ORDERED:

1) Defendant's motion to continue, (filing no. 21), is granted.
2) The trial of this case is set to commence before the Honorable John M. Gerrard, United States District Judge, in Courtroom 1, United States Courthouse, Lincoln, Nebraska, at 9:00 a.m. on October 22, 2013, or as soon thereafter as the case may be called, for a duration of three (3) trial days. Jury selection will be held at commencement of trial.
3) Based upon the showing set forth in the defendant's motion and the representations of counsel, the Court further finds that the ends of justice will be served by continuing the trial; and that the purposes served by continuing the trial date in this case outweigh the interest of the defendant and the public in a speedy trial. Accordingly, the additional time arising as a result of the granting of the motion, the time between today's date and October 22, 2013, shall be deemed excludable time in any computation of time under the requirements of the Speedy Trial Act, because despite counsel's due diligence, additional time is needed to adequately prepare this case for trial and failing to grant additional time might result in a miscarriage of justice. 18 U.S.C. ยง 3161(h)(1) & (h)(7).
