This is one area where a private attorney can help and a PD simply is not that involved as yet. NJ does not have a 180 day rule as does the Feds. Some counties have their own rules ordered by the assignment judges. The delay will permit reductions in bail. Rule 3:25-3 allows for dismissal for "unreasonable" delay to indict. A motion needs to be filed but the indictment will likely occur before the motion is heard. Make sure copies of the recantations or corrects to the reports are kept. The prosecutor may have to present those to the Grand Jury and if it is not done could be a basis for further action. A private experienced criminal defense attorney would likely help.
Having an attorney during this process will makes things move along in a more smooth fashion. A motion to reduce bail can be made as well as the 10% option. Also many attorneys accept payment plans so that you can afford a private attorney. Once indicted, Cape May County usually provides the the defense attorney the Grand Jury recorded audio CD. this will allow your attorney to determine whether the facts and charges were presented to the grand jury appropriately. My office is 5 minutes from Ocean City.
