IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 7, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
GABRIEL ORTIZ-CASTANEDA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Before the Court is Defendant Gabriel Ortiz-Castaneda's motion to continue the trial setting in this case. (Doc. 28.) The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that trial should be postponed. The Court additionally finds that, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(8)(A), the ends of justice served by the granting of a continuance outweigh the interests of the public and Defendant in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Defendant's motion to continue. (Doc. 28.) The Court CONTINUES Defendant's trial to Tuesday, September 5, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. The time from the date Defendant's motion was filed, July 7, 2006, until the date on which the trial is rescheduled, September 5, 2006, is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
