If the person is in jail, how long does the DA have to file before releasing them? 2 Answers as of September 08, 2014

My boyfriend was arrested for trespassing at 10:35 p.m. on 9/2/14 and is still sitting in jail. There is no court date because the DA hasn't filed charges yet.

The DA could potentially have years to file charges depending on the statute of limitations but regardless, your boyfriend should be able to bond out or have a bond hearing. If the bail is too high for him to pay, his attorney should file a motion for a reduction or an OR release.
