Dan Wenner wrote an article, "Infomercials, Criminal Contempt And The Speedy Trial Act," for Law360. The article analyzes the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, which held that the Speedy Trial Act did not apply in the criminal contempt case against TV infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau. Trudeau, who was found guilty and sentenced to 10 years in prison, argued the running clock for a speedy trial began when an initial show-cause order was issued by the district court. As Wenner points out in the article, the Seventh Circuit, agreeing with the district court, found the act did not apply because the first show-cause order limited Trudeau's exposure to six months. "The court's analysis and reasoning underpin the importance of being mindful of the structure, applicability and limitations of the Speedy Trial Act in criminal prosecutions," Wenner wrote.

Dan Wenner authored an article, "If Your Client Became A Citizen Around The Time Of The Crime," in Law360. The article delves into the case of United States v. Olivar, No. 14-55336, 2016 WL 1553906 (9th Cir. Apr. 18, 2016), in which the government sought to denaturalize a convicted fraudster because he committed the crime just prior to his being naturalized. The government wanted to denaturalize him so he could be removed from the United States as an aggravated felon. Defense counsel whose clients are naturalized should be mindful of the timing of the criminal conduct vis-à-vis the naturalization. Even though an individual might be a naturalized citizen at the time of conviction, that person must have been "a person of good moral character" in the five years prior to naturalization; otherwise, their citizenship could be revoked.
