    The prosecutor wasn't in today. And the officer moved to Seattle...right after my FIRST court date.

    "In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial"

    I question this courts definition of "speedy."

    In most cases the defendant can demand a speedier trial, but it is almost never truly to his benefit to do so.

    Each side is allowed to have the case continued equally.

    I am shocked that there was no prosecutor.

    Looks like you may be getting off if the officer does not return.

    That's it, I suppose, the policeman is not going to show up and it will be dismissed.

    Were it all worth the trouble?

    I think, NOT.

    Only federal jurisdictions are effectively bound by speedy trial requirements. Cases are often kept in local jurisdiction to allow for better more lengthy development that feds aren't allowed.

    The case of a meth chemist in my old neighborhood hadn't been adjudicated when I moved away five years later. He still lived in the neighborhood, harassed the old ladies and caused me to frequently keep a marked unit parked in front of my residence and to OC discretely off my curtilage for the old ladies' benefit and his.

    Doesn't change the fact that *I* question it.
