    Me and my fiance' got busted on June 17th 08 and went to a prehearing June 24th 2008. How long do the courts have to give us a court date before they have to drop the charges. I was told 60 days from the time we went to court to find out we were going to be indited.

    By "prehearing" do you mean "preliminary hearing"? You had a preliminary hearing on June 24, were bound over to a superior court for further proceedings, and are waiting
    for your new court date?

    Yes. we got busted on June 17th. Went for our bail hearing on the 18th and then on the 24th went to hear what charges they had against us and they said that we were going to be indicted. Now we are just waiting on that.
