    i been waiting to go to court for

    I been waiting to go to court for about 19 months on these charges on me and they just reset the date for another 2 months. I asked my lawyer about the right to a speedy and it says the speedy trail act says ready for trail in 6 months. my lawyer says that does not matter any more. I don't want to piss him off I already paid him 8,500.00. I fill like im getting screwed. who do I need to talk to about this

    Depends on each state's law of trial. I don't know what charge it is but I would think they have up to the statue of limitations to commence a trial. There are rules such as no bill twice and so forth but there are too many unanswered ? here for someone to help you. I wouldn't press it and let them dead docket it until they either drop it due to procedure infractions or statue of limitation run out. The longer it goes on for the better it is for you. This is all my opinion and I am not giving you legal advice.

    The wheels of justice turn ever so slowly..........
    I see you are in Texas..... It took Texas a year to go to trial with the guy that shot Chris Kyle.....

    Good luck........

    No, if the state drops the charges they must give your gun back to you if you wish to have it back..

    Not always - but MANY times, resets get done because the defense attorney pushes for them. While, sometimes things like lab evidence can take 9-12 months to come back on a drug case... I see defense lawyers who drag thing things out as long as possible. But, I also see that deals that the prosecutor offers to a defense attorney seem to get better (from the defense attorney's stand point) the longer the defense attorney drags the thing out.

    I remember reading the entire thread and the gun being pulled over thrown pop bottles. You are one lucky S.O.B. I hope you learn from this and if you get your gun back you

    don't repeat the crap you just got away with.

    I have a gopro in my truck now that runs 100% of the time so it will not happen again. if someone runs a stop sign and brake checks me again. I'm just going to call it in and show them the video.
