At my arraignment the judge gave me an order to give to my lawyer. It says that my attorney has 10 days to file these motions before he loses the right to. What are these motions? Would any of them help to delay my case?
You, or your lawyer, need to file discovery motions, motions to dismiss, motions to suppress, and varies motions in limine. Yes, these motions can be used to delay your case as well as help you beat the charges against you.
