PageID 19 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. Case No.: 8:17-mj-01531-JSS MATEO GOMEZ-PEREZ / ORDER THIS MATTER is before the Court on the Government's Unopposed Motion for a Determination that the "Ends of Justice" Warrant a Tolling of the Speedy Indictment Deadline. (Dkt. 10.) Defendant has no objection and has filed a Waiver of Right to Speedy Indictment (Dkt. 9) through and including October 31, 2017. Upon consideration and after considering the factors set forth in 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A), the Court finds that the ends of justice served in tolling the time in which Defendant Gomez-Perez must be charged by information or indictment on the charges in the criminal complaint as required by 18 U.S.C. § 3161(b), outweighs the best interest of the public and Defendant in having a speedy indictment and trial. The parties are currently negotiating a resolution of this matter and are working toward a plea agreement, but they need additional time to do so. A resolution that avoids indictment and trial will preserve prosecutorial, judicial, and public resources. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Government's Unopposed Motion for a Determination that the "Ends of Justice" Warrant a Tolling of the Speedy Indictment Deadline (Dkt. 10) is GRANTED. The time period between August 26, 2017, and October 31, 2017, shall be deemed excludable under the PageID 20 Speedy Trial Act, 18 U.S.C. §§ 3161–3174. DONE and ORDERED in Tampa, Florida, on August 24, 2017. Copies furnished to: Counsel of Record 2
