How many days does the state have to bring you to trial?
Under "speedy trial" rules generally the prosecution must begin within 90 days of arrest. But this is subject to MANY things, not the least of which is the defense waiving the right to speedy trial in order for them to prepare more adequately for the trial process. Any requests for waiver of "speedy" whether requested by, or granted by, the defense extends the trial date by the amount of time agreed upon. Added: Many states require the defendant (or defense attorney) to file a formal speedy trial demand before such time constraints take effect.

How many days a government keeps the culprit in jail if no bail is granted?
(in the US) The defendant is protected by the Constitutional provision of right to a speedy trial, and their case will usually be presented before the end of 90 days. HOWEVER - this timeframe is flexible and if either the defense or the prosecution asks for the waiver of "speedy trial" it is customarily granted.
In the state of Ohio how many days do you have from the time you are charged with a crime till they have to take you to court to answer for it?
As soon as charges are filed either a warrant is issued for your arrest or you are given a notice to appear in court. In either case you are given a court date immediately. Added; So-called "speedy trial" requirements are for you to be tried within 90 days of the date you are formally charged unless the "speedy" provision is waived, either by you or your defense attorney. Waiver of a speedy trial is the norm and is usually readily agreed to in order to allow both the defense and the prosecution to properly repare their cases for presentment.

After winning a suppression hearing can you file a motion for speedy trial if the prosecution has adjourned the case four times after the suppression was granted?
I would file a motion to dismiss the case. If the prosecution has deprived the accused of his right to a speedy trial, the charges must be dismissed. Four continuances by the prosecution seems like too many to ensure the accused a speedy trial. I suggest you talk with a criminal defense attorney ASAP (if you are not already represented) , as you will need a good lawyer on your side to get the charges dropped or a speedy trial.

How many times can the Maryland court postpone before they have to drop the charges?
That is a question that you should be addressing to your legal counsel (public defender(?). To comply with the legal requirement of "speedy trial" both sides have to agree to a waiver of the "speedy trial" provisions before the judge will grant a continuance. OBVIOUSLY both your attorney and the prosecutor are AGREEING to postpone it.

What is the Speedy Trial right in California traffic court?
I'll correct this answer because I have the legal knowledge. Traffic violations in California are infractions and ARE bound by "Speedy Trial" requirements. (See Penal Code, Section 1382(a)(3).) For traffic violations, you have 45 days from the day of arraignment or entering the plea, which ever is later (usually both happen on the same day, but while we're talking about the law, in theory, they can occur on separate days). NOTE: However, if you mail in a plea, you waive your right to a speedy trial, as explained in Vehicle Code, Section 40519 (b). --end correction When an officer writes you a citation (Notice to Appear) - the citation goes to a filing officer who takes all the traffic violations to the city attorney for filing. Many times the ticket will be lost, misplaced or entered wrongly into the computer. If you go to court and your name isn't on the list, be sure to have the clerk stamp your ticket that you appeared.
