I know that she did not waive her rights to a speedy trial. Her attorney might have without my wifes's permission. I have been to everyone of the court appearances and my wife as of March 2nd, 2013 has not had a preliminary hearing thou she did request a probable cause hearing at the begining back in August 2012. What can I do for her? Her court appointed attorney is doing nothing. I cannot afford an attorney for her.
