  • Q. I live in new york and was charges with aggravated dui in may 2020 and have yet to be arrainged it was to be june 6 2020
    A: Unfortunately, you are in a similar situation as hundreds of individuals, as nearly all cases since the beginning of COVID have yet to be arraigned. While the statutory speedy trial time has not begin to run under CPL 30.30, there is also a constitutional right to speedy trial. Having said that, given the pandemic circumstances, I do not see a court finding a constitutional speedy trial violation yet. If your case is still not arraigned in several months, you should contact a lawyer to see if you have a viable constitutional argument for a violation of speedy trial.
