I was arrested on Aggrevated stalking a few months back and still no charges filed. How long it takes to settle this kind of case. DA has been talking about First offender plea.
It can take from a few months to several years to get a case taken care of here in Gwinnett. If you are anxious to get the case resolved, speak with your attorney to see what can be done to get you the best outcome possible in the fastest time. If you don't have an attorney, expect for the case to drag on until the prosecutors decide to put it on a calendar. Also, if you don't have an attorney, expect to get a much worse deal from the prosecutors than if you had help.
If you don't have an attorney, you really need to get one for charges like these ASAP.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance. I would be happy to help.

On felony charges, it generally takes from a few months to a year or two before an arraignment is scheduled. The State has to present evidence to a grand jury which will then makes a determination whether there is enough evidence to return an indictment. You should consult with an attorney right away. The attorney may be able to negotiate with the State and reach a resolution prior to your case being indicted. If you are simply in a hurry, the attorney may be able to convince the State to expedite your case. Either way, you will need the assistance of an attorney.
If the DA has been talking to your attorney about a plea, and if it is something you want to accept your case can be resolved fairly quickly. Your attorney or an attorney your hire(if you don't have one) can contact the DA and schedule a date to come in and resolve your case sooner than later. Your attorney can work a deal, if that's what you want, with the DA before its indicted and the process can then be sped up.
