I have a question about my brother in law who has been in jail

Customer Question

I have a question about my brother in law who has been in jail for almost three years with no trail in sight. Why would someone be held this long with no trial? How long can a person be held?

My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
What is your brother charged with? Apart from the trial case, are there any other holds on him, such as a violation of probation or parole? Who is responsible for the delay, if you know?
