IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 26, 2007
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JERRIE G. BROWN, JAMES L. HIGGINS, TROY W. EVANS, AND TERRI JO MAYS, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
ORDER CLARIFYING TRIAL DATE
Defendants Brown, Higgins, and Mays were arraigned on September 10, 2007. At that time, they were given a trial date of October 29, 2007. Defendant Evans was not arraigned until September 17, 2007, and was inadvertently given a trial date of November 5, 2007. The Court now clarifies that the trial date for all defendants in this case is set for Monday, October 29, 2007 at 9:00 a.m.
The Speedy Trial Act requires that trial "not commence less than thirty days from the date on which the defendant first appears through counsel or expressly waives counsel." 28 U.S.C. § 3161(c)(2). Therefore, the setting in this case complies with the Speedy Trial Act, as Evans was arraigned more than thirty days prior to the October 29, 2007 trial date.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
