State v. Twitty, 212 N.C. App. 100 (May. 17, 2011)

(1) G.S. 15A-711(c) could not support the defendant’s statutory speedy trial claim where he had no other criminal charges pending against him at the time he was confined and awaiting trial. (2) The court rejected the defendant’s constitutional speedy trial claim. The defendant made no argument that the delay was caused by the neglect or willfulness of the prosecution; he did not properly assert his speedy trial right; and he failed to show actual prejudice.
