I never told my public defender to waive my right to a speedy trial. I didn't find out that he done that until it was to late. I didn't even know what a speedy trial meant then. I was told that public defenders waive your right to a speedy trial to have more time to prepare the case, but yet at the same time it also gave the state more time to prepare a case. When I make an appeal for other reasons can I add not waiving my rights to a speedy trial?
