IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 14, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
EARNEST STANFIELD, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Before the Court are Defendants' motions to continue the trial setting in this case. (Docs. 23, 25.) The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that trial should be postponed as to both Defendants. 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 Defendants in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Defendants' motions to continue. (Docs. 23, 25.) The Court CONTINUES Defendants' trial to Tuesday, September 18, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. The time from the date Defendants' motion was filed, July 14, 2006, until the date on which the trial is rescheduled, September 18, 2006, is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
