Cawley v State - Constitutional Speedy Trial Requires findings of fact

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Cawley v. State, A13A2238, October 25, 2013. The Georgia Court of Appeals vacated the Glenn County Trial Court denied of a Constitutional Motion for Speed Trial in a case involving a 2009 arrest that was not brought to Trial by April 2013. The Brunswick Georgia Trial Court issued an order summarily denying the Constitutional Motion for a Speedy Trial without findings of fact and conclusions of law addressing the four Barker v. Wingo factors.  The factors are whether (1) the delay is uncommonly long;  (2) the reasons and responsibilties for the delay; (3) the defendant's assertion of the right to a speedy trial; (4) the prejudice to the defendant.
