My first trial is next Monday, just got the mail today (Thurs) asking to pick up the disclosure. Which means I only have tomorrow (Fri) to pick it up and have the weekend to work on my trial strategy.
I sent a fax to the prosecutor's office 2 1/2 months ahead, and then I followed up in person last month. Do I have enough case to have the trial delayed?
*Date on the letter i got today was written in May 6, so even if I picked it up right away I still had less than a week to prep
Thanks in advance
You already know what offence youve allegedly committed, so how much will disclosure impact your defence? For instance, if youre accused of failing to stop at a stop sign and the officers notes simply say you failed to stop, theres not much to review or research. The more complex the charge and the more information there is to review, the more likely an adjournment. I dont say this to discourage you, just to consider how you'll articulate your request. I think most people get denied simply because when they're asked why it's needed, theyre caught off guard.
Very valid question. If you had several months notice and didn't act on it immediately, that may lower your chance for getting an adjournment.bend wrote:When did you get your Notice of Trial?
Do not take anything I say as legal advice. Only a lawyer can give legal advice. I am not a lawyer.
