CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether defendant’s right to a speedy trial was not violated?
Defendant was convicted of being an ineligible person in possession of ammunition and receiving stolen property. Defendant appealed. On appeal, defendant argued his right to a speedy trial was violated. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that defendant’s right to a speedy trial was not violated because during the delay he was already incarcerated on unrelated charges, he suffered no apparent prejudice in being able to present his defense, and the reasons for the delay were large administrative.
State v. Morrow, A19-1658, Blue Earth County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
