    The fact that it has taken this long is a travesty in itself. Why the delay? The investigation could not possibly have taken this long. Three years after the incident and the trial date hasn't even been set? I lived in Broward County for decades. It has one of the worst law enforcement and court systems in the state in my opinion. Apparently vehicular homicide isn't that big a deal any more......

    It does seem like a long long time to get to trial. But I got called for jury duty a few months ago in Broward. I wasn't selected but the case concerned a domestic violence episode from 2012 or 2013.

    The prison industrial complex is too busy clogging the courts and jails with kids caught with
    minuscule amounts of drugs while murderers, rapists and pedophiles walk free.

    Well, it's been a year since the last post. Does anyone know if this case was ever resolved?

    Case is still open, still issuing subpoenas, trial date now 8/14/17.

    Lots of action pre-trial.

    I would not hold my breath on that.

    The hearing 8/14 presents another opportunity to request more time for the defense. I'm pretty certain the county is ready to go.

    I saw that there was no trial judge assigned when I looked, that's kind of interesting, but I don't know what that really means as to proceeding. I would have thought the judge hearing the motions to this point would have been the trial judge too, but I don't really know how the system works internally at the court.

    6th amendment is, I suppose, relative. If the prosecution delays unreasonably, that's one thing, but when the defense delays to build its case, that's not a 6th amendment issue.

    Plea set for 12/14/17. Kicked the can down the road again. I don't expect anything to actually happen on that date, within a month of the holidays, surely his attorney won't be able to make court that day, so maybe spring 2018 would be better. Sometime in May perhaps?

    I just read all 27 pages of this thread. Tragic but fascinating.
