Was right to speedy trial denied in stalking trial?
Defendant was convicted by a jury trial of stalking and domestic assault. On appeal, defendant argued that his constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that most of the delay between defendant’s arrest and trial was attributable to him, that he was amenable to two continuances, and discredited him claims of anxiety, whereby his right to a speedy trial was not violated. Affirmed.
