    4th Cir: ICE detention not under Speedy Trial Act, except for "ruse exception"

    Friday, 11 April 2008 19:00 Chuck Roth 4th Circuit

    U.S. v. Rodriguez-Amaya (4th Cir. 4/11/08)

    WILLIAMS, Wilkinson, Duffy (DistCt)

    The 4th Cir found civil ICE detention not to count for purposes of the Speedy Trial Act. It agreed that there is a "ruse exception" if the Govt uses the civil detention as a cover for criminal detention, but found that his civil detention was for the purpose of executing the reinstated removal order, not to keep him around to be charged criminally.
