My friend requested a speedy trial. He has been held in custody for about 40 days now and has not been arraigned yet. He just got his 1st court date which is in about a little over 2 weeks. He has not been assigned a public defender yet either. Is it true that if you do not have arraignment within 45 days of initially being arrested that you must be released?
And, if the speedy trial was requested how long does the state have to get into court before their time is up? Also, when are charges really filed? Is it when you are arrested or arraigned?
