Denial of Speedy Trial Rights in New York
In People v. Taranovich, 37 NY2d 442, 335 N.E.2d 303, 373 N.Y.S.2d 79 ), the Court examined the following factors in determining whether there has been a denial of the defendant's speedy trial rights.
The Court of Appeals set forth the following five factors a court must consider in determining whether a defendant has been denied his constitutional right to a speedy trial:
(1) the extent of the delay;
(2) the reason for the delay;
(3) the nature of the underlying charges;
(4) whether or not there has been an extended period of pretrial incarceration;
(5) whether or not there is any indication that the defense has been impaired by reason of the delay (37 NY2d at 445).
