UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
FRANCISCO GOMEZ-LOPEZ, Defendant.
LYLE E. STROM, Senior District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on defendant's motion to continue the change of plea hearing (Filing No. 24). The Court finds the motion should be granted. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that the Rule 11 hearing is rescheduled for:
Thursday, April 3, 2014, at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom No. 5, Roman L. Hruska United States Courthouse, 111 South 18th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska, or as soon thereafter as may be called by the Court. The parties will have time to finalize plea negotiations, and it will accommodate the schedule of the Court. The ends of justice will be served by continuing this case and outweigh the interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial. The additional time between January 16, 2014, and April 3, 2014, shall be deemed excludable time in any computation of time under the requirement of the Speedy Trial Act. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A) & (B). A copy of the petition to enter a plea of guilty and a copy of the plea agreement, if there is one, shall be provided to the Court at least twenty-four hours prior to the scheduled hearing. Failure to do so may result in the hearing being rescheduled.
