It is not up to the defense to prove or disprove anything, it is up to the prosecution to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. The court can set a trial date but if you are not prepared or discovery is not yet complete, then it is up to you or your attorney to file a motion for an adjournment of trial or a motion to compel discovery.

It sounds like you are trying to represent yourself. That is a huge mistake. If you don't have a lawyer, get one or demand a public defender. If you do have a lawyer, then you should discuss your case only with your lawyer.

After the defendant is in prison, the defendant can file complaints with judicial committee. You are not railroaded until you are in prison.
