Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Under the law, your son has a right to have his attorney file to get a bond reduction. If the court will not reduce the bond, then the DA has up to 120 days to issue an indictment or charge him and failure to do so is grounds to release him. If your son is not getting charged or released, you need to contact his attorney to seek a bond reduction hearing to get the bond lowered to something affordable to get him out of jail. If not, he can get his attorney to file a motion for a speedy trial, which would then start the clock to force the prosecutor to bring the case to trial in 180 days or dismiss the case.
