Speedy Trial

WHAT IS THE SPEED TRIAL RULE IN FLORIDA

The state must bring any person charged with a crime to trial within 90 days of arrest if the crime charged is a misdemeanor, or within 175 days of arrest if the crime charged is a felony.

The defendant may make a demand for speedy trail. By make such demand the defendant is certifying he or she is ready for trial. Once the demand is made the trial must be held no later than 60 days from the date of the demand.
