UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
WILLIAM H. WALLS, Sr., District Judge.
This matter having been opened to the Court on the joint application of the United States of America, Paul J. Fishman, United States Attorney (Mark J. McCarren, Assistant U.S. Attorney, appearing) and defendant Maksym Shynkarenko (by Arkady Bukh, Esq., appearing) for an order continuing the proceedings and excluding time from computation under the Speedy Trial Act of 1974; and the charges being the result of a lengthy investigation spanning more than four years, and the defendant needing sufficient time to review the voluminous discovery - which includes many thousands of pages of documents, including thousands of e-mails and instant message communications, numerous search warrant applications and orders and the voluminous data recovered therefrom, Title III applications and orders and the results of those intercepts, and hundreds of screen captures, and to investigate the charges and file motions in this case; and the Court having found, in light of the above, that this case is sufficiently complex that it is unreasonable to expect adequate preparation for pretrial proceedings and for the trial itself within the time limits established by the Speedy Trial Act of 1974; and it appearing that defendant retained new counsel who did not enter an appearance in this matter until January of 2013; and the Court having found that an order granting a continuance of the proceedings and excluding time from calculation under the Speedy Trial Act of 1974 should be entered in light of the complexity of the case, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h) (7) (B) (ii); that the ends of justice are served by granting such an order, and for good cause shown,
WHEREFORE, it is on this 8 day of September, 2013
ORDERED that this matter remains designated as a complex case pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h) (7) (B) (ii);
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT the proceedings in this matter shall be continued for the period from September 18, 2013 through on or about October 16, 2013;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the court shall conduct a status conference on or about October 16, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. during which the Court shall set dates for the filing of motions and responses to said motions as well as a trial date in this matter;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the time period from September 18, 2013 through October 16, 2013 shall be excluded from computing time under the Speedy Trial Act of 1974; and
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the remaining provisions of the Order for Discovery and Inspection shall remain in full force and effect.
