Legal Question in Criminal Law in Florida

Question about my case

i was arrested back in feruary of this year on a domestic violence charge. The victim has told the state that she does not want to press charges. and even signed a paper stating so. The state said they were going to drop all charges. This has been since February, when i got arrested. Since then its been a bunch a STATUS CONFERENCES. and they changed my public defender like 4 times already. Is there anything that i can do to speed this whole thing up. Like i said its been 7 MONTHS. And I havent even been to court yet. Or talk to anybody. Is there any paperwork i can file on my behalf or something? To speed this whole thing up.???

Re: Question about my case

If you want to press this and force the state attorney to try the case or lose you can make a demand for a speedy trial. However,you or your atty(public defender)might have waived this right. If you would like to persue this further send me a e-mail or call me i am in my office now.

Speak to your attorney about a speedy trial demand. Although I am sure natural speedy has ran you can still demand a speedy trial. There is some strategy involved so best to go over it with your attorney.

Good luck

The longer the case, the better for you, usually. I would just sit tight. I would also check with your assigned lawyer.

There are no papers you can really file without the assistance of an attorney. If you want to call my office the number is 1-800-94-TRIAL.
