JAMES ARTHUR PRICE, JR.
Present: All the Justices
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).
