United States v. Ruiz-Sierra

United States District Court, Eighth Circuit

November 20, 2013

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
JOSE L. RUIZ-SIERRA, Defendant.

ORDER

THOMAS D. THALKEN, Magistrate Judge.

This matter is before the court on the motion for an extension of time by defendant Jose L. Ruiz-Sierra (Ruiz-Sierra) (Filing No. 19). Ruiz-Sierra seeks until December 21, 2013, in which to file pretrial motions in accordance with the progression order. Ruiz-Sierra 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. 18). Ruiz-Sierra's counsel represents that government's counsel has no objection to the motion. Upon consideration, the motion will be granted.

IT IS ORDERED:

Defendant Ruiz-Sierra's motion for an extension of time (Filing No. 19) is granted. Ruiz-Sierra is given until on or before December 23, 2013, in which to file pretrial motions pursuant to the progression order. 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., the time between November 20, 2013, and December 23, 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. ยง 3161(h)(7)(A) & (B).
