Yes, under California and federal law, you do have the right to a speedy trial, so they can't hold you in jail indefinitely. In fact, I suggest you have your lawyer submit a motion to the court to have you released and tell them that you don't waive time, meaning that they have to bring you to trial within 30 days (which would be this coming weekend, as you say) or they have to release you and drop the matter.

Please rate 4 or 5 and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
