I would think the state is well within its time imits. However, you might want to ask the defendant's attorney just to be sure. If the defedant does not have an attorney, make arrangements to obtain one.

The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
There is no statute of limitations in KY in which to charge a felony offense. I presume from your post that the defendant was charged and arrested for a felony offense and the case is still pending in District Court. I further assume that as a condition of bond he is on the HIP program.
If he demands a probable cause hearing, the judge will grant his request within 20 days from his arrest, if out of custody, and schedule a hearing. At the hearing the case will be dismissed, reduced or waived to the Grand Jury for an Indictment. This person should direct this question to his attorney.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
