If it's been that long, I would strongly consider filing a motion to compel discovery or possibly a motion to dismiss. If you are not represented by an experienced criminal defense lawyer, now is the time to get one.

This is something you need to talk to your attorney about. If the D.A. is deliberating withholding evidence, your attorney should file a discovery motion and get a court order compelling the D.A. to turn over what they have.

She must file the appropriate motion to order the DA to turn it over. Your attorney knows this.

This question is unclear. Try again. You have the right to a speedy trial but if your attorney requests discovery it could delay things.
