Vargas v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant, an inmate at the Wyoming State Penitentiary, was convicted of two counts of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and two counts of conspiracy to take a controlled substance into a state penal institution. The Supreme affirmed the convictions, holding (1) there was no violation of Defendant’s right to a speedy trial, where the time between Defendant’s arraignment and trial was 201 days, as the delay was part of the due administration of justice and thus did not violate Wyo. R. Crim. P. 48; and (2) the district court did not abuse its discretion when it denied Appellant’s motion to continue.
