My question involves criminal law for the state of TN
The police wrote a complaint for a felony. I was arrested and saw the magistrate judge who set bond. I went to a preliminary hearing a few weeks later where I asked for a speedy trial and pled not guilty. That judge bound the case to the grand jury. I am out on bond now and it has been a month.
How long does it take to be indicted? Do my rights to a speedy trial start when I was initially arrested or do they start after I am indicted? I think the DA wants to wait as long as he can before putting the paperwork before the grand jury because they know I am unemployed because of the charge. They know the charge will be dismissed at trial, but want to make me suffer. I just want to get the court process started asap.
