PageID 209 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. CASE NO. 8:17-cr-355-T-35TGW BRIAN QUINONEZ-SOTO and REYANDRA CAMORLINGA JOINT STATUS REPORT The United States of America, by W. Stephen Muldrow, Acting United States Attorney for the Middle District of Florida, files with this Court, pursuant to Fed. R. Crim. P. 17.1, the following status report. In response to the inquiries in the Court's discovery order, the United States has conferred with defense counsel and herein states as follows: 1. Brief summary of the case's status: The defendants were indicted in a five-count indictment in July of 2017. Count One charges conspiracy to distribute and to possess with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine (actual). Counts Two through Five charge distribution of particular weights of methamphetamine (actual). Mr. Quinonez-Soto is charged in every count of the Indictment. Ms. Camorlinga is only charged in Counts One and Two. The United States has provided discovery. Mr. Quinonez-Soto pleaded guilty to Count One of PageID 210 the Indictment on February 13, 2018, pursuant to a plea agreement with a cooperation provision. Ms. Camorlinga remains in the case. 2. Possibility of a plea agreement: It is unclear how the matter will be resolved. The parties hope to have greater clarity once Ms. Camorlinga makes a final decision regarding counsel and has a chance to review newly produced discovery. See Doc. 51. 3. Number of days required for trial, for government's case-in-chief: It is estimated the United States would require between five days to present its case-in-chief. 4. Pending motions, dates on which they were filed, and whether they are ripe for determination: Ms. Camorlinga's motion to revoke her detention order and motion to continue trial are both ripe. 5. Potential speedy trial problems: There are no Speedy Trial problems: the Court moved this case to the March trial term after making an ends-of-justice finding. Should the Court grant the pending motion to continue, Doc. 51, there would still be no problems. For the reasons laid out in that motion, the parties agree that Speedy Trial will not run until after April. See id. at 5–6. 2 PageID 211 I have consulted with Matthew Luka, Camorlinga's attorney, prior to the filing of this joint status report and have received authorization to file this report with the Court.
