IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 14, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
BRANDON A. PRICE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court is Defendant Brandon A. Price's Motion to Continue (Doc. 30). The Court finds that the trial should be postponed because of the reasons cited in Defendant's sealed motion. In addition, the Court finds that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A), the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and Defendant in a speedy trial because of the reasons set out in the sealed motion.
Therefore, the Court GRANTS Defendant Price's motion to continue trial (Doc. 30) and CONTINUES the trial set for April 27, 2009 until July 27, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. The time from the date the original motion was filed, April 13, 2009, until the date on which the trial is rescheduled, July 27, 2009, is excludable for purposes of a speedy trial.
Should either party believe that a witness will be required to travel on the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (JPATS) in order to testify at the trial of this case, a writ should be requested at least two months in advance.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
