The implications of speedy trial can be dramatic and severe, since the case gets dismissed when a speedy-trial violation has occurred.  This presentation will discuss the sources of “speedy trial” protection, both constitutional and statutory, and how they operate, and will address key pitfalls for the prosecutor to avoid.

Presentation will cover these areas:

  • Constitutional Speedy Trial
    • 6th Amend., U.S. Const.
    • Art. I, Sec. 10, Ohio Const.
  • Statutory Speedy Trial
    • R.C. 2945.71 to .73
  • Other Trial Time Limits
    • R.C. 2963.30 (Interstate Agreement on Detainers)
