Speedy Trial

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether defendant’s right to a speedy trial was not violated?  

Defendant was convicted of domestic assault and disorderly conduct.  Defendant appealed, arguing that 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:  (1) the trial only exceeded the speedy trial window by 30 days; (2) the defendant’s single demand for a speedy trial followed the defendant causing a total delay of more than 180 days between charging and the first scheduled trial date; (3) neither the State nor the court were to blame for the delay; (4) the defendant had previously waived his right to a speedy trial; and (5) the defendant suffered no prejudice as a result.  Affirmed.

State v. Wyatt, A19-1465, Dakota County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
