ORDER RESETTING FINAL PRETRIAL CONFERENCE

AND COMPETENCY HEARING

On this day the court conducted a telephone conference call with counsel for the

Government and counsel for the Defendant regarding the mental exam of the Defendant to

determine his competency for trial. The court has been informed today by the U.S. Marshal that

the August 31, 2012 Order directing the United States Marshal to transport the Defendant to a

suitable facility for a competency exam was never received by the Marshals Service. The reason

the electronic notification system did not transmit a copy of the Order to the Marshals Service was

fully discussed with counsel during today’s telephone conference. Nevertheless, the Marshals

Service is now aware of the Order and has informed the court that the Defendant will be

transported to a suitable Federal Bureau of Prisons facility for a mental competency exam as soon

as possible. However, as a result, the court and the attorneys recognize that the January 7, 2013

final pretrial setting is now too soon and must be rescheduled. In order to give the Bureau of

Prisons time to conduct its examination, the court hereby CONTINUES the Final Pretrial

Conference and Competency Hearing until Monday, March 4, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.

Further, the court finds, and counsel for both sides agree, that pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Sec.

3161(h)(1)(A), this delay is excludable in computing the time within which the trial of this case

must be commenced.
