MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES

 

I.††††††††† STATEMENT OF FACT

[Type Statement of Fact for MOTION FOR SPEEDY TRIAL/ACCELERATION OF TRIAL DATE here.]

II.††††††† LAW AND ARGUMENT

The victim of crime has a right to a speedy trial or disposition. Ariz. Const. Art. II; ß2.1 (10). The right of a victim to a speedy trial is balanced with the defendantís due process right to a fundamentally fair trial. State, ex rel. Romley v. Superior Court, Roper, RPI, 172 Ariz. 232, 836 P.2d 445 (App. 1992). The Victimsí Bill of Rights must be proportionate to the interest of protecting the victim as balanced against the defendantís due process right to a fundamentally fair trial. Id. The trial date should be set at a date which satisfies both the victimís right to a speedy trial and the defendantís right to a fair trial.

The crime victim will be available for trial on the following dates: (TRIAL DATES)
