why does it always take so long to get this stuff in court? If this is his first apperence than that means enter his plea and go back to jail right? so why so long from arrest to now?

never ceases to amaze me how little the people on this board respect the law, the american justice system, and the values it represents.

I, too, hate how long it takes law enforcement to put a case together...but I would rather they take the time and GET IT RIGHT rather than throw something together to please the public. If you have kids...how many times do you know exactly who started what? RARELY, would be my guess and you are probably in the same house when these altercations occur. Can you even imagine being an officer ofthe law...starting with NOTHING!!! Give the boys in blue a break folks! What they accomplish with nothing puts what we do on a daily basis to shame!

but why does it take so long after the arrest for the first hearing? this guy was arrested at least a month ago he should have been in court before now I would think. I am only wanting to know why so long from arrest to court hearing.

Was it anything to do with his court stuff in another county? Could be he had to go through all his sentencing and such there first.
