    California JUVENILE ARRESTED FOR DUI, released into custody of hospital. ARRAIGNMENT HEARING DATE AND CHARGES filed a few days past three months later. Arraignment hearing 117 days after arrest. charges filed by da, 3 months later. Is this a violation of childs right to speedy trial? Also, arraignment charged with dui on one day..but actually driving on day before.Is this date error grounds for anything?

    Three months??? It should be, but sadly, it's not. My DWI trial took 8 months.

    Somebody told me if you bond out of jail the right to a speedy trial stops. Not sure if it's true though.
