How Long Should I Wait For Notification Of My Trial Date? (updated)Submitted by Chris Cheapjackski on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 01:46
I was found guilty of all of the following and did my jail time from April 10-20th. I represented myself and offered no defense other than the facts. I was going to tell the story here when I got out but all the deep brooding resentment got in my way. I may have never even gotten around to telling the story at all, but all the Adam Kokesh talk lately has gotten me thinking about what it means to be willingly imprisoned for a cause.
More to come.
(I can go into more detail now that it is over so the next paragraph is somewhat irrelevant)
Apologies first that I can't go into too much detail, yet, about specifics. I do promise they will be forthcoming.
About 6 weeks ago I attempted to observe a traffic stop. Things happened which resulted in my being charged with obstructing an officer as well as resisting an officer.
Last Tuesday, the 26th, I met with the district attorney and told him I wasn't interested in any plea deals, that I wanted to go to trial.
He told me to expect a letter telling me when the trial was scheduled.
As of Saturday I haven't received the letter.
How long should I wait?
Is there some sort of time limit?
Thanks anyone who can help me figure this out.
