    I'm currently going through this...
    he's only been gone barely 3 months, but it's awful, as he has not even been indicted yet, so it's literally just dead waiting, which is worse, I think...I've never been through this before.

    Has anyone had a similar experience? How did you deal?
    I'd love to know I'm not the only one who's gone through this, comforting right now is something I love.

    And, I plan to marry him while he's in there and spend the rest of my life with him :D ...which, is why this is so awful...

    If he hasn't been indicted, why is he in custody?

    Has a bail been set yet?? If he can,t make bail or if he is on parole or probation he can be held and not sentenced for awhile
    - That sucks* *Maybe if the alleged crime isnt a bad felony - when he does have to stand in front of the judge...he,ll just get "time served" and be cut loose- -
    It is a rather long time though...the wheels of justice move very fuckin slow- :banghead: (that's from experience )

    Different laws in different states but for the most part > They have until the statute of limitations expire to charge somebody with a crime. If you are arrested then the state has only a certain amount of time to bring you to trial on those charges (be it grand jury, or by the district attorney) before they have to release you. The charges can always be brought back until the statute expires.

    There is more than one way to charge someone and an indictment is not always necessary. In general, a person should be charged within 3 days of being arrested but there are many exceptions. If they are on probation, for instance. Or are awaiting extradition, or have an immigration hold.Etc,, Etc,,,

    I'm certainly no lawyer, but have had to spend more time than I care to admit in court rooms and county jails(many moons ago)
    Talk to a lawyer- the consultations are free- If you have to use a Public defender ,,but Id get on it. Ive seen people with minor legal issues get lost in the system- - GoOd LuCk
  6. Or if he was on probation or parole... they hold you here for probation violations until you see a judge...

    Somethings not right. They won't hold you for 3 months without some kind of hearing, be it the arraignment or probation revocation. There is almost always some form of hearing withing 72 hours, with rare instances where it takes longer because of holidays or other reasons. Then after arraignment they typically decide the bail amount and conditions.

    Also, looking over kittee's posts, she's also looking for guidelines for a three way, this month.
    So, if her fiancé is in county lock up.......
