US v. Tinklenberg, No. 06-2646

Defendant's firearm possession conviction is reversed and the district court is instructed to dismiss the indictment with prejudice where the length of time between defendant's indictment and prosecution violated the Speedy Trial Act, and a reprosecution would be contrary to the administration of justice because defendant had already served the entirety of his sentence, as well as his sentence for violating his supervised release.
