Speedy Trial

Denver Criminal Defense Attorney Andres R. Guevara Will Protect Your Right to a Speedy Trial

The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees individuals accused of crimes the right to a speedy trial. This right is intended to ensure that defendants are not subject to unreasonably lengthy custody prior to trial and to ensure that the state or federal government brings a case to trial within a reasonable length of time. A delay in the investigation or prosecution of a criminal matter may violate a defendant’s Constitutional or Colorado statutory speedy trial rights.

Motions to dismiss can be brought when a defendant’s right to a speedy trial has been denied. A defendant can seek an order terminating a criminal action because of the delay in the prosecution of the case.
