What should YOU do with this motion?
Well, if I had a friend or loved one who languished in jail without a hearing for longer than 3 months (misdemeanor) or 6 months ( felony), I'd print out the attached document and send it to that person.
If I received such a motion while in jail beyond those times without a hearing, I'd fill it in and ask my jailer to let me file it with the court. Then I'd file it, with the County Clerk, sending copies to the judge, the prosecutor, and the local newspaper editor. I might attach a note explaining the circumstances of my arrest and incarceration.
A person charged with a crime has the right to depose witnesses, review the documents related to the criminal charge for proper oath and affidavit of the accuser, and to obtain a speedy, fair trial. What else does the incarcerated person have to do?
