United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
October 19, 2005.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
ANTHONY WATTS, Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: DAVID HERNDON, District Judge
Before the Court is a motion to continue submitted by Defendant
Anthony Watts. (Doc. 161.) The Court, being fully advised in the
premises, finds that trial should be postponed since Attorney
Frederick J. Hess was only recently appointed, on October 14,
2005. (Doc. 159.) Also, the Court finds that pursuant to
18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A), the ends of justice served by the
granting of such a continuance outweigh the interests of the
public and Defendant in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court
GRANTS Defendant's motion to continue. (Doc. 161.) The Court
CONTINUES Defendant's trial to Monday, February 13, 2005. The
time from the date Defendant's motion was filed, October 18,
2005, until the date on which the trial is rescheduled, February
13, 2005, is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
