ORDER FOR A CONTINUANCE
WILLIAM H. WALLS, District Judge.
This matter having come before the Court on the joint application of Paul J. Fishman, United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey (Sara F. Merin, Assistant U.S. Attorney, appearing), and defendant Angela de Jesus-Concepcion (Kathleen M. Theurer, Esq., appearing), for an Order granting a continuance of the proceedings in the above-captioned matter through and including February 28, 2014; and the defendant being aware that she has the right to have the matter brought to trial within 70 days of the date of her appearance before a judicial officer of this Court pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Section 3161(c)(1); and four prior continuances having been granted since defendant's appearance before a judicial officer of this Court; and the defendant having consented to entry of this Order; and for good and sufficient cause shown,
IT IS THE FINDING OF THIS COURT that this action should be continued for the following reasons:
(1) Plea negotiations are currently in progress, and both the United States and the defendant desire additional time to negotiate a plea agreement, which would render trial of this matter unnecessary; and
(2) Defendant has consented to the aforementioned continuance; and
(3) Pursuant to Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 3161(h)(7), the ends of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendant in a speedy trial.
WHEREFORE, it is on this 9 day of July 2014;
ORDERED that this action be, and it hereby is, continued from the date this Order is signed through and including February 28, 2014; and it is further
ORDERED that the period from the date this Order is signed through and including February 28, 2014, shall be excludable in computing time under the Speedy Trial Act of 1974; and it is further
ORDERED that a status conference is set for March 11, 2014 to set a schedule for trial and motion deadlines.
