Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-243 provides that a defendant may not invoke statutory speedy trial protections where the defendant’s conduct has caused the State to be unable to try him within the five-month period allowed by that statute. Where a defendant’s conduct caused him to be held “continuously in custody” for more than five months, the Commonwealth is not responsible and the statutory speedy trial limit does not apply. Thus, a defendant may not invoke the five-month limit of Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-243 where the trial court has taken all necessary legal steps to release defendant from custody and defendant’s refusal to execute the personal recognizance bond containing standard conditions was the only impediment to a full legal release.
  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-243 provides that the time periods in it shall not apply to such period of time as the failure to try the accused was caused by numerous circumstances fairly attributable to the accused, expressly including by reason of his escaping from jail or failing to appear according to his recognizance. The enumerated exceptions are not all-inclusive; others of a similar nature may be implied. The exceptions, both express and implied, often look to the defendant’s actions which tend to delay the trial.
