IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 7, 2006
UNITED STATES, PLAINTIFF,
JAMES BOSWELL AND MARY BOSWELL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Before the Court are the motions of Defendants James Boswell and Mary Boswell ("Defendants") to continue the trial date in the above-captioned matter. (Docs. 16, 17.) This matter is currently set to go to trial on March 13, 2006. The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that the trial should be postponed, as counsel for both Defendants was only recently appointed. In addition, the Court finds that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A) the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Defendants' motions to continue (Docs. 16, 17), and CONTINUES the trial until June 12, 2006. The time from the date the motions were filed (March 3, 2006) until the date on which trial is rescheduled (June 12, 2006) is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
David R Herndon United States District Judge
