How long can you be held before indictment

Atlanta, GA |

How long after being arrested can a person be held in jail before being indicted? The person is being held on multiple felony charges mainly armed robbery. What is the statute of limitations for this crime?

  1. If the person is being held without bond, the state must indict within 90 days or they must be granted bond. An experienced criminal defense attorney can possibly help them get a bond and fight these charges. Armed robbery is a very serious offense with a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison with no early release if convicted, so I do not recommend going it alone without an experienced attorney in their corner.
