Despite plentiful plaintive pleas for a speedy trial, Cattaraugus, N.Y. man spends seven years in jail awaiting trial (for large marijuana grow). Second Circuit: Which, so far as we know, is a new record in this circuit. It’s also an “egregiously oppressive” violation of the Sixth Amendment. Conviction reversed. He’s a free man.
