US v. Toombs, No. 08-3278

By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a drug and firearm prosecution, a denial of defendant's motion to dismiss the indictment under the Speedy Trial Act is affirmed in part where defendant's defense was not hindered by the delays that occurred. However, the ruling is reversed in part where the district court failed to make a record upon which adequate findings could be based with respect to defendant's Speedy Trial Act claim.
