Legal Answers
  • Q. 267 days no grand jury no indictment ny
    A: Hello - while I of course do not know the specifics of your case, if you have an attorney (assigned or private) it is possible they filed a waiver of speedy trial in an effort to encourage negotiations. If you are in Columbia County, they do things quite differently, so reach out to your attorney ASAP to find out what, if anything, has been done on your case.
