IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 31, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
OSCAR V. ORTIZ, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Now before the Court is Ortiz's motion to continue revocation hearing (Doc. 83). Specifically, Ortiz moves to continue the revocation hearing in this matter until the resolution of the disposition of USA v. Ortiz, 11-30046-MJR-10. The government does not object to a continuance. In order to best serve the ends of justice and to conserve judicial resources and, pursuant to the provisions of Title 18, United States Code, Section 3161, the above-styled cause is hereby continued until the resolution of the criminal charges against Defendant Ortiz in 11-30046-MJR.
The Court finds that the ends of justice served by the granting of such continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy disposition of this matter and, therefore, determines that any time elapsed is to be "excludable time," pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Section 3161(h)(8)(A).
Accordingly, the Court
GRANTS Ortiz's motion to continue revocation hearing
(Doc. 83). The Court will reset this matter at the appropriate time.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
