I spoke with an attorney to review my case and since he was doing it for free , he asked me to give him a few weeks and he sent a speedy trial waiver to me which I signed . This is a misdemeanor and my 1st arrest . I am pleading innocent as I truly am innocent . I didn't retain him as my attorney because nothing has happened since the arrest . The states case is rather weak . I do know that a witness of the event was called in and gave formal testimony . My understanding is that a speedy trial waiver has to do with the 90 day window for misdemeanors and 175 for felony in regards to the actual trial after arrest , if charged . However , how long can they sit on this before deciding to drop the case or actually file charges ? It has now been over 120 days and I am still stressing about it .The two answers are different and so maybe it is not clear. Thank you both however. The attorney was retained at the time of the speedy waiver. The arrest was for a 3rd degree misd. I waived speedy trial expecting the charge or information to get filed. I paid my bond out of pocket and have not gotten it back. I would file a demand for speedy trial but they never filed an information or charges? Can they still file or ammend the charge?
