Justice delayed: Kristopher Chavez’s 6th amendment right to a speedy trial violated

Justice delayed: Kristopher Chavez’s 6th amendment right to a speedy trial violated


Yesterday, February 2, 2018 my attorneys informed me that my trial originally scheduled for March 5, 2018 would be delayed until July 16, 2018.  A hearing was held and the judge decided at the urging of the prosecutor and a co-defendant to delay the case (against our objections).  This post is to create a public date-stamp to document that I believe my constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated and as an innocent man, a great continuing harm will result to my business, customers, employees, reputation, and family.

I pray that justice will be done soon in this case, so we may begin picking up the pieces of our shattered lives caused by this mistaken prosecution.  Thank you to everyone who continue to love and support us through this ordeal.

    My wonderful mother Betty is fond of quoting Joel Osteen “Keep doing the right thing when the wrong thing is happening.” This has been my motto over the past two years reminding me that I have the strength to endure and adversity reveals who a person is. I will keep doing the right thing. There will be a blog post soon on this topic.
