IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 29, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
DAMMARO D. PERKINS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Before the Court is a motion to continue trial submitted by Defendant Dammaro D. Perkins. (Doc. 12.) The Court, being fully advised in the premises, finds that trial should be postponed. 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 a continuance outweigh the interests of the public and Defendant in a speedy trial. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Defendant Perkin's motion to continue. (Doc. 12.) The Court CONTINUES the jury trial scheduled for Tuesday, September 5, 2006, at 9:00 a.m. until Monday, October 16, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. The time from the date Defendant Perkin's motion was filed, August 29, 2006, until the date on which the trial is rescheduled, October 16, 2006, is excludable time for the purposes of speedy trial.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
