This is something to discuss with the attorney of records. There are many reasons why the attorney may be continuing the case. Given he has been in custody for a year, this must be a felony. All the investigation may not be completed on the case. Talk to the attorney.

No, waiting is necessary. He just keeps getting duped to waive his right to a speedy trial. Spend some money and hire a lawyer.

It is up to the defendant to tell his attorney that he does not want to "waive time" and wants a speedy trial. On the other hand in a serious case attorneys need time to do what is required. They also have other cases that need their attention too. In addition in serious case my experience is, having handled hundreds of murders, attempted murders, serious assault and sex cases, the older the case and the more you work on it, sometimes delaying it for months the better the outcome. The attorney needs to really be working on all aspects of the case in the meantime of course.
