Case #: 2022-CF-**** – Felonies Discharged
Our client was arrested and charged by the police with Possession of Cocaine, and Open Carrying of a Firearm. Upon receipt of the case, our attorney maintained contact with the client, reviewed the facts, and watched the calendar. The State failed to file charges against our client within 175 days, as required under his right to a Speedy Trial. As soon as the Speedy Trial period ran, our attorney immediately filed a Notice of Expiration of Speedy Trial and a Motion to Discharge the client, preventing the State from prosecuting him. Both charges were discharged, and the State cannot legally pursue the charges against him.
