Preliminary Hearing Trial Transcript
February 18, 2004 - page 31
1 can get a transcript of this hearing today before we write
2 our motions?
3 THE COURT: That would be appropriate. Let's
4 continue this matter for a period of four weeks.
5 Is that acceptable?
6 MR. SASNETT: It is acceptable to us your Honor.
7 THE COURT: 17th of March at 1:30.
8 MR. SASNETT: Yes.
9 THE COURT; At that point we can have final argument
10 on this matter and then I'll give you a ruling.
11 MR. ADAMS: Is there a time waiver?
12 Mr. SASNETT: Mr. Canada, the Court advised you that
13 you have a right to a continuous preliminary hearing.
14 That means you have a right to have a decision from the
15 court today.
16 As I have mentioned to you I think It might be
17 advantageous for the parties to brief their respective
18 positions and give the Court the benefit of those thoughts
19 before he rules on whether or not to hold you to answer.
20 To do that you have to waive two rights. One is
21 to a continuous preliminary hearing.
22 Do you understand that right?
23 THE DEFENDANT: Yes.
24 MR. SASNETT: Do you waive and give up that right?
25 THE DEFENDANT: Can I ask a question?
26 THE COURT: No, ask Mr. Sasnett.
27 (Counsel and his client confer.)
28 THE COURT: I have reconsidered my position on this.
