United States v. Tigano, No. 15-3073 (2d Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
Defendant appealed his conviction for five counts of drug-related charges. The Second Circuit reversed the judgment of the district court and dismissed with prejudice the indictment on all related charges against defendant, holding that his Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial was violated by his nearly seven years of pretrial detention. The court noted that the pretrial detention experienced by defendant appeared to be the longest ever experienced by a defendant in a speedy trial case in the Second Circuit.
