She was arrested on 5/28 at 6 45 pm. initial appearance was on the 29th and that is where it says at courts pleasure for pretrial. then I see an order from the judge it says she should be directed to appear before the court on the first Tuesday following her arrest. which will be the 4th of June. that is more then 72 hours. that is hours short of a week. Can they do that? This is the pretrial release being revoked that the arrest warrant was for on the precursor charge.
But it wasn't over the weekend. The 28th was last Tuesday at 6 45 pm. 72 hrs would be up at 6 45 pm on Friday. or because the last 2 hrs and 45 minutes of the 72 hrs is on the weekend, they are holding it over. Can they hold it over because of that? And as corrupt as this court is, should one even bring up the issue? Or is it worth fighting this issue? If so how would one do it? And another Question on this issue, does she have to physically be there? Or is this something her attorney can go to? Because when she was first charged with this last October it was 3 weeks before she physically went in front of a judge herself. It was three weeks before she even new she had a court appointed attorney.
Thanks Paul Have a good weekend.
