How long does it take to have a trial after arraignment on the information or indictment?

0

Trials of felony charges must start within 60 calendar days of the arraignment on the “Information” or “Indictment” unless you and your attorney agree to a longer time period. This 60 day time limit is part of your “speedy trial” right. However, this 60 day limit can be extended in a number of ways under the law. There are many reasons why cases are sometimes delayed past this limit. One example may be that a particular case is complicated or that witnesses might not be available at the right time. Under these circumstances you may wish to agree to a more convenient date.
