I have been charged with telephone misuse, maryland code 3-804. When I went to district court on 1/16/13 I chose at that time a jury trial. So far I have operated pro se. I went to district court on 2/7/13 and I was told that the trial date would be 5/10/13. The summons ended up saying 5/23/13. This is 270 days since the charge was filed. The judge told me by exercising my right to a jury trial that I automatically waived my right to a speedy trial (180 days).
My questions: 1 Did I waive my speedy trial right by selecting a jury trial; and 2 If not, when did the 180 day count begin.
