It’s been a full year since Gilberto Reyes has been in the San Miguel County jail. His trial for a charge of distribution of marijuana is set for late February.
We suppose the players in our local justice system would argue that they are ensuring Reyes’ constitutional right to a speedy trial. We think such a claim is hogwash.
As we have stated in this space before, we consider this case a huge failure of our justice system. And the blame goes around to all involved — the judge, the prosecutors and the defense attorney.
