Dear JACUSTOMER - I'm still not sure if tomorrow is the actual trial but if it is you will not be able to ask the judge anything since I seriously doubt that your attorney would put you on the stand to testify. If there is an issue as to procedure your attorney will be the one to raise it to the court. What concerns me is the time this has taken and why there wasn't a motion to dismiss for denial of a speedy trial. Obviously I do not have access to the case file and I don't know what motions, if any were filed by your attorney and therefore I certainly cannot criticize what your attorney has done or not done to this point. I would assume your attorney will raise the issue of the time it has taken and possibly ask the court to throw out the test due to the questionable nature of the entire process. I would assume the judge would already know how long all this has taken since he will have the court file.
