No Speedy Trial Act violation for defendant indicted in 2001

In U.S. v. Ketron, Judge Jones denied the defendant's motions for dismissal for violation of his statutory and constitutional rights to a speedy trial, where the defendant was indicted in 2001 but did not appear before a judicial officer in the W.D. Va. until 2003, having been in prison elsewhere in the interim. The defendant was represented by Nancy Dickenson of Lebanon.
