Criminal law -- Speedy trial -- Trial court erred by denying discharge of defendant on speedy trial grounds based on its lack of awareness of notice of expiration of time for speedy trial. Trial court was required to grant discharge unless one of the reasons in Rule 3.191(j) was shown where defendant strictly complied with rules by filing her notice of expiration of speedy trial time with clerk of court and serving a copy on the State and defendant filed a motion for discharge because she had not been brought to trial within recapture period. Trial court directed to conduct inquiry required by rule 3.191(j).
