United States v. Maryea, No. 11-2239 (1st Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to unlawfully distribute Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Suboxone, Larzepam, and Ativan. The First Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that the district court did not err by (1) denying Defendant's Speedy Trial Act claims in her motion to dismiss on the basis that the exclusion of time for her co-defendant's continuance was unreasonable as to her; (2) failing to sua sponte order a mental competency evaluation after Defendant sustained an injury during trial; and (3) denying Defendant's motion for judgment of acquittal based on a prejudicial variance between the conspiracy proven at trial and that charged in the superseding indictment.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on January 25, 2013.
