DEFENDANT EDWARDS’ JOINDER TO MOTION TO CONTINUE #272

Defendant, John M. Edwards, by and through his counsel, Richard A. Wright, Esquire,
Wright Stanish & Winckler, moves this Honorable Court, to join Defendant Gutierrez Motion to
Continue, Docket 272.

John Edwards was extradited from the United Kingdom to the United States and appeared
before this Court on August 14, 2014, at which time he was ordered detained. Mr. Edwards’
diminished capacity resulted in an order for a competency evaluation which commenced on October
30, 2014 when he arrived at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in San Diego, California. The
undersigned counsel is in the process of delivering to the facility the medical records and previous
competency evaluations from the UK. Counsel anticipated a four month evaluation process.
Counsel is familiarizing himself with the case pleadings and discovery and has not yet
commenced a review of the evidence/discovery.

UNITED STATES’ JOINDER TO DEFENDANT
GUITERREZ’S MOTION TO CONTINUE

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, by the United States Attorney and undersigned
Assistant United States Attorney, hereby moves this Honorable Court, to join Defendant
Gutierrez’s Motion to Continue Trial (Docket No. 272). In support of its motion, the
Government states:

1. Defendant John Edwards, who is joined for trial with his co-defendants, is
undergoing a competency evaluation. The issue of Edwards’ competency is not expected to be
Case 2:09-cr-00132-JAD-GWF Document 282 Filed 11/14/14 Page 1 of 2
resolved by the current trial setting of January 5, 2015. The interests of judicial economy and
other efficiencies weigh in favor of continuing the case until these issues can be resolved.

2. Defendant John Turino, the only other defendant who has been detained in this
case, has moved to join the motion for a continuance. (Docket No. 275.)

3. The remaining defendants are out of custody. Defendant Dvorak has joined the
motion. Defendants Spooner and Kinney have not opposed the motion.

For these reasons, the Government respectfully moves to join Defendant Gutierrez’s
Motion to Continue Trial (Docket No. 272) and asks the Court continue the calendar call and
trial date in this Case until mid-summer or fall 2015.

RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED this 14th day of November 2014.

Daniel G. Bogden
United States Attorney
District of Nevada

JeffreyTurino (not John) agreed to the Continuance most likely because of the new 65 discs & additional 500 pages which need to be translated & would think he would be interested in going to trial IF/When, Edwards will be there.

Gutierrez's attorney has a previously scheduled trial which he already stated, wouldn't be over until Feb 2015.




Just my opinion, of course.
