    I have a friend who is in jail on pending charges with an ongoing probation violation case in another county. The county where the probation violation case is has issued a writ for the last three months for him to be brought to court. The sheriffs department has not complied with the writs and his case has been forced to be continued. There has already been an agreement reached between him and the prosecuting attorney, he is just waiting for sentencing. My question is; does this deny him the right to a speedy trial, and what can he do about it?

    He needs to consult with HIS lawyer. I SUSPECT the local sheriff is holding him pursuant to the current probation violation/revocation hearing. He's probably not going anywhere until that has been adjudicated.

    The other case will wait until the county that's holding him has had their fill of his flesh!!!!
