For arraignment, you must be presented at the next regularly scheduled session of court. After arraignment, under "speedy trial" rules - although they may differ slightly from state-to-state - you must usually go to trial within 90 days. However, if your attorney agrees to waive "speedy," your trial date may be postponed however long your attorney agrees to. If you believe that you have been waiting overly-long for your trial, check with your attorney.

How long can you be held without a trial?

The answer to that quesion is a moveable target. (in the US) AS A GENERAL STATEMENT: You must be presented to court within 72 hours of your arrest. Once that criteria is met, the "speedy trial" rule kicks in and you are under a 90-day time limit to be presented for trial. HOWEVER, certain extenuating circumstances can occur to delay the actual start of the trial itself. The prosecution may request, and be granted, additional time to gather the evidence in the case and prepare for trial. But - WHAT IS MORE LIKELY TO OCCUR, is that the DEFENSE attorney requests a continuance so that THEY can prepare for trial. So long as the defense attorney keeps requesting, or agreeing to, continuances the trial can be postponed and put off. As long as the requests and grants are made part of the courts record it is possible that this could occur several times prior to the case actually going to trial.
