asking for a friend. he was arrested by local police at the instruction of federal agents and booked on state charges. almost a year after state arrest, federal agent again arrested him on same charges but federally this time. original charges had federal involvement omitted from every report. he was forced to bond in both courts and jailed for weeks until bonds were met. federal investigation now reveals local officers acted completely on agents instruction and were a result of federal investigation. can agents get around 6th amendment speedy trial rights by manipulating and operating between state and federal jurisdictions? since original arrest was truly in pursuit of federal charges, shouldnt speedy trial start from arrest date of original arrest. is it not excessive to bond in both?
