My fiance has been in holding for 34 hours now without getting a courtdate. He is still being "processed" He is in there for disorderly conduct. Is this legal? How long can they hold him without charging him with something? Why might it be taking so long?

He can be held for three 'court days'. If not timely taken to court for arraignment, he can file a motion to dismiss. After that is granted, if they want to, they can rearrest him and start over, without him ever leaving the jail system.
If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me. Iíll be happy to help fight and get the best outcome possible, using whatever defenses and sympathies there may be.
