Default Seven years in jail pre-trial leads to conviction overturned

Tigano argues that his constitutional and statutory rights to a speedy trial were violated by his nearly seven years of pretrial detention. Because we agree with Tigano that his Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial was violated, we need not consider his remaining arguments regarding his statutory right to a speedy trial and an alleged Fourth Amendment violation by an aerial infrared scan of his residence. Accordingly, on November 15, 2017, we REVERSED the judgment of the district court and DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE the indictment on all related charges against Tigano. We remanded to the district court for the limited purpose of releasing Tigano and indicated an opinion would follow.
