PRICE

Record No. 980061

COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA

v.

JAMES ARTHUR PRICE, JR.

Present: All the Justices

PER CURIAM

FROM THE COURT OF APPEALS OF VIRGINIA


In this appeal, the Court reviews a judgment of
the Court of Appeals holding that the accused was held
continuously in custody in excess of five months from a finding
of probable cause until trial in violation of Code
Sect. 19.2-243, the so-called "speedy trial"
statute. Price v. Commonwealth, 25 Va. App. 655,
492 S.E.2d 447 (1997).

For the reasons set forth in the opinion of the
Court of Appeals, we will affirm that court’s judgment. See
Jackson v. Commonwealth, 255 Va. 625, 642, 499
S.E.2d 538, 549 (1998).
