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.
If your Sixth Amendment rights have been violated, your criminal defense lawyer can bring a motion to terminate a criminal action.
