What is the time limit on arraignments to indictments in Mississippi,

This answer was rated:

What is the time limit on arraignments to indictment's in Mississippi, did they change this law in 2012?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

The MS law on arraignments has not changed and the defendant must be brought before the court for arraignment unless it is waived on a misdemeanor or waived in person on a felony charge within 48-72 hours from their arrest.

My brother was busted and arrested for a parole violation. He was getting meth for a friend. But was clean. They did no blood test. He was wondering about the time because he was hoping it had expired. What do you think?

Thank you for your question and clarification.

Parole violations are a bit different than an arrest for a new charge. It does not matter why he was getting meth or that he was clean, that act of getting it for a friend would be a parole violation and revocation of parole does not get bail or an arraignment. He would get arraignment on the new charge for purchasing the meth if they charged him with that.
