This answer was rated:

out on bail how many times can a DA file for a continuance? They have already filed three times. defendant, been out for sixteen months on bail, defendant shows up for every part, the DA is not showing up.

Subscription customers. An ACCEPT is credited to me but you are not charged. Followup questions WILL be answered if my first answer is acceptable.


It really depends on the reason for the continuance and whether the defendant objects and makes a motion for dismissal. Usually the longer it takes the better for the defendant.
