IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 10, 2007
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ANTHONY R. WISE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
MEMORANDUM and ORDER
This case is set to commence trial on September 17, 2007. On August 29, 2007, defense counsel moved for a psychiatric and/or psychological examination of Defendant Wise. The pendency of that motion necessitates a trial continuance and stops the "speedy trial" clock. The Court hereby RESETS the hearing on the motion (Doc. 29) for 11:00 am, September 21, 2007.
Accordingly, the Court CANCELS the September 17, 2007 TRIAL, with that date to be reset after the Court resolves the question of Defendant's competence to proceed herein. The delay resulting from the pendency of the motion -- and the time required to set and conduct hearings to determine whether Defendant Wise is competent to proceed -- SHALL BE EXCLUDED under the Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(1)(A) and (F).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
