The court dismissed, with prejudice, the indictment against defendant, who was charged with knowingly transferring stolen corporate checks across state lines in 1997. The 1997 complaint claimed that as office manager and bookkeeper of VIMRx Pharmaceuticals Inc., defendant signed 74 checks totaling $590,600 payable to a company of which she was part owner. The court found that the case “did not simply fall off the radar screen” during the three-year gap between arrest and indictment, “given the evidence of intermittent plea negotiations that occurred during the period.” The court concluded that the “seriousness of the offense charged weighs against a dismissal of the indictment with prejudice,” but determined that “[i]t is undisputed that the delay here is serious.”
