I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC),

I was arrested 2 months ago for 273.5 or 273.5(a:PC), corporal injury of spouse. I was given an arraignment date. I was bonded out for $50,000. I went to court 2 days before the arraignment because I was scheduled for surgery on the same day. The clerk ran a check on me but nothing came up. I was never given a case number. I received a letter from the clerk of the court. It stated in short that the District Atty has not filed a new case against me. I don't know why I was arrested. My wife did not want to press charges against me. But I was arrested. It's now been over 2 months. I don't know what to do. My wife has talked to the detective about my case and he said it would probably be dropped. My wife cannot even get a police report because its still an open case. What should I do?

I have a friend, who has been in jail since 3/10/2016 for something that he said he did not do. I visited him today through Iwebvisit.com and he asked to help him to find out about his rights of "SPEEDY TRIAL". He has been held in jail for more than 6 months and his assigned attorney did not make contact with him for almost 50 days. He left several voice messages for the assigned defend attorney but his attorney did not return his calls. Please advise what my friend should do to get SPEEDY Trial Law enforced. All he needs is someone to set a court date so that he can have a peace of mind to stay in jail to wait for that moments to prove he is innocent in front of the judge.

I was wondering if you could tell me how a judge has to

I was wondering if you could tell me how long a judge has to deliver a written judgement. This is related to having an arrest record expunged. Back on August 12th we had a court hearing were we presented our case. We have been in and out of court on continuous by either the DA or the judge since February. The judge said he had not read the case so he wanted to read it and make a written ruling, to which we agreed too. The judge said he would send out the ruling by August 26th. We have not heard anything as of yet. So how long do we have to wait by law? Any suggestion on how to move it along?
