The client: a convicted felon already, got an MTR on his probation for a 1st offense DWI when he got new charges: A class B and a class C misdemeanor charge (which are both on the same court date) and then a second degree felony charge which has not yet been indited yet. (it's taking forever for that inditement) His MTR court date is separate from his others. His court dates keep on getting postponed and we would like to know if he should try to combine all charges and motion for a speedy trial? Or just wait it out and keep it all separate? We appreciate any advice given! Thank you!
This question is best answered by the criminal defense attorney who is representing the defendant. There are advantages to keeping all charges separate and to combining them. An attorney who knows the system your are in, the prosecutions policy on concurrent and consecutive sentences, the judges, and the law for your jurisdiction should be able to provide the best answer.
My response to your question is a generic response and should not be construed as controlling to your case. I can not effectively advise about your case without knowing all the facts. Additionally, my response does not create an attorney-client relationship. You can contact my office to schedule an appointment if you would like to have me represent you.
