United States District Court, D. New Jersey
JONATHAN ROMANKOW, Assistant U.S. Attorney.
CHARLES E. WALDRON, Esq., Counsel for Defendant Matthew Rublowitz.
ORDER FOR CONTINUANCE
DOUGLAS ARPERT, Magistrate Judge.
This matter having been opened to the Court by Paul J. Fishman, United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey (Jonathan W. Romankow, Assistant U.S. Attorney, appearing), and defendant MATTHEW RUBLOWITZ, a/k/a "Fat Matt" (Charles E. Waldron, Esq., appearing), for an order granting a continuance of the proceedings in the above-captioned matter; and nine continuances having previously been granted; and the defendant being aware that he has the right to have the matter presented to a Grand Jury within thirty (30) days of the date of his arrest pursuant to Title 18 U.S.C. § 3161; and the defendant through his attorney having waived such rights and consented to the continuance; 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 currently are in progress, and both the United States and the defendant desire additional time to enter a plea in Court, which would thereby render trial of this matter unnecessary.
2. Defendant has consented to the aforementioned continuance.
3. The grant of a continuance will likely conserve judicial resources.
4. Pursuant to Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 3161(h)(7)(A), the ends of justice served by granting the continuance outweigh the best interests of the public and the defendants in a speedy trial.
WHEREFORE, on this 27th day of January, 2014;
ORDERED that the proceedings in the above-captioned matter are continued from January 7, 2014 through March 7, 2014; and it is further
ORDERED that the period between from January 7, 2014 through March 7, 2014 shall be excludable in computing time ...
