I just got my trial dates and was wondering how best to take advantage of right to a speedy trial. My pre trial hearing date is 94 days from arrest and the actual trial is 107 days from arrest. This is a misdemeanor case and I have yet to subpoena witnesses as I just got the dates today. All discovery has been done and currently we are about 82 days from date of arrest.
Thank you for your thoughts and time.So I have all the info the state has on my case and ready for trial. I believe the arresting officer in the DUI case is going to be called in by the state anyway (only good part is no one can testify that they saw me driving the car) so I don't really have any witnesses to help my case. So I am going to file the expiration on day 90 and hopefully that will put me in good position plea bargain wise at the hearing. I wonder on avg how often the state gets messes up and speedy ends up helping the defandant. Also does filing any motions to suppress evidence effect the clock on this.
