Speddy Trials

Postby Adams » Sat Dec 03, 2016 12:59 pm

well, the advantages are that you put the prosecution on edge because they have to conduct a trial by a certain date.  If they are lacking evidence or waiting for evidence to become available, then it may force them to dismiss a case or offer a better plea bargain.

The disadvantage is that if the prosecution has a good case, and your'e not prepared, you could end up going to a trial that you get beat on.
