I would recommend speaking with your wife's attorney about this situation. There are many reasons why the State will ask to delay hearings, so without knowing the specifics of this matter it would be impossible to give an accurate response. Your wife's attorney is the best resource to use in this situation, as they are in the best possible situation to assist you. Best of luck, this does sound like a terrible situation your wife has been placed in.
Unfortunately, sometimes things in the court system move slowly. It is not clear if you were also charged with a crime. If so, I would make sure your attorney knows all of this information. If not, make sure your wife's attorney knows this information. As more evidence comes to light suggesting that the warrant was invalid, or that there was some sort of corruption in the process, the case against her definitely gets weaker. Perhaps her attorney can move to reduce the amount of her bond based on new information regarding corruption in the search and seizure process.
The situation you describe suggests a really horrific degree of misconduct on the part of the police, so I can understand that the courts will want to proceed carefully. As has been pointed out by others, the court system often moves slowly under the best of circumstances. There are no hard rules as to how long a motion can be postponed, and often they are heard in conjunction with the trial itself, which can take a while.
To my mind, the current issue is that your wife is being held under a high bond while the case works itself through the system. I am sure her lawyer has contemplated a bond reduction, and given these facts it might be possible to have her bond reduced. But there may be other aspects to the case that impact her bond situation beyond what you have related here, so you should probably talk to her lawyer directly to get a better handle on what is going on.
No answer to these questions is intended to, nor does it, create an attorney-client relationship. There is no substitute for an actual conversation with a licensed attorney about the particular facts and circumstances of your case.
