Turner v. State

Defendant was charged with escape from official detention. Defendant later filed a motion to dismiss the escape charge due to an alleged failure to bring him to trial within the time limits contained in Wyoming’s Interstate Agreement on Detainers (IAD) statute. The district court denied the motion to dismiss. Appellant subsequently entered a conditional guilty plea, reserving his right to appeal the denial of his motion to dismiss. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the speedy trial provisions of the IAD did not require that the charge against Defendant be dismissed because the IAD did not apply in this case.
