How come it takes a state 1 year to take a man to court even though they have been in jail for over a year I know that they are busy with other people but I mean come on.

I often wonder the same thing. Seems like high profile cases get tried faster. The reason for the hold up, at least some of them, could be the motions filed by the defendant's attorney to suppress information, or to withhold it (that cause a different hearing from different judges), and also, it takes a lot of time to build a case in the prosecutor's office. I don't know how many prosecutors states have,but it seems like each state could use some more.
