What can I do in Ohio to get a speedy trial?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The law provides that those accused have a right to a speedy trial. "Speedy" means that unnecessary delays cannot be imposed, but the time it takes to get to trial is subject to other cases on the docket, which are slotted on the calendar as they come up. The accused doesn't participate in the scheduling of the trial.


Answer by  patti (29325)

"Speedy" is a subjective term. Courts are bound to hear cases in a manner that is free of unnecessary delays, but depending on the nature of the case and the Court in which it is heard, some cases take more than a year to come to trial.


Answer by  Dean (4035)

All cases are brought to trial in a timely manner, which is a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Cases are added to the docket and heard in that order. There's not much you can do to move ahead in that line.

You have to plea bargain include a statement by the prosecutor that no additional charges would be filed out of the underlying incident.


Answer by  BilWitters (436)

Speedy trials are only guaranteed in criminal trials, so if your case is criminal a speedy trial is guaranteed. If civil, you need to find an attorney who is quick.

Virtually nothing unless your case is very serious. You can have your lawyer fill in some paper work to get a speedy trail done for a law court. But there is no guarantee things are going to get done.

I don't beleive there is any county that is specifically known for getting a speed trial. Your attorneys can try and get your trial moved up for good reason

what is the need for a speedy trial? obviously you have made it out on bail , if you typed this question. if you are in fear of evidence that may "surface" in the meantime. then try to have it suppressed , if it finally does make it to court
