If he has a public defender, he/she needs to be contacted and told of his medical condition, first and foremost. Additionally, your husband needs to contact his attorney and ask that he/she contact the case manager and have the matter scheduled as soon as practicable. Unfortunately, due to budget shortfalls and backlogged dockets in the metro courts 30 days is not out of the ordinary, regardless of how harsh the punishment is in relation to the offense.
I agree with my colleague. The best recourse in this issue would be to contact your attorney and ask him to call the case manager. In all honesty, the case managers for the Judge control the calender so that is your quickest and most beneficial way to get this case on a calender sooner than later.
