Let’s look at Timelines as they relate to procedure of the criminal justice system in relation to the charge, with date ranges, and the length of the process.

According to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) in a 2020 report titled, Crime in Texas, there were an average of 55,000 newly charged state crimes each month.

The system faces a substantial burden in disposing of all the criminal cases in a timely manner.

The Court of Criminal Appeals is Texas’ highest court for criminal cases and the final stop for relief when faced with charges in almost all cases.

If your case goes all the way through the legal system, it may be years before you ever get that appeal.

If your case is federal, it can make it to the United States Supreme Court.

As a consultation for representation often marks the very beginning stages of the legal process the attorney should provide you with some insight into the length of time it will take to dispose of your case.

The attorney will often give you an overview of the ways of resolving your legal issue and the different time frames in doing so. The attorney will explain whether the entire case process is covered by the representation or if it is limited.

In most cases, an attorney will limit the scope of the agreement to best achieve your goals while meeting their duties and obligations.

You need to know whether the lawyer will cover pretrial negotiations and hearings, the trial, or appeal if convicted. The time it takes to resolve your issue may be only a few weeks up to possibly years.

    In 1997, I was charged the first time in my life for a felony, Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child and Indecency. The 3 local attorneys, in a row, having control of my case flat-out conspired together and with the prosecution team to force the 2 juries, in a row, to convict me and to sentence my to virtual death by prison. Although I had alot of education at the time, the AEDPA robbed me of my one and only full “bite of the apple” in state habeas, hence, federal habeas also. There simply are so many lies, facts, and so much evidence that demonstrates my innocence and the extreme corruption necessary to charge and convict me
    that it is MIND BOGGLING! I eventually filed a worthless “writ” many years ago. It was of course followed by a worthless 2254. What evidence I had, I didn’t know how to use and have discovered much since! State’s Exhibit #1 was fabricated and my attorney(s) failed to even request funds to have the original analyzed! The charges were OFFICIALLY initiated (2-11-97), only 10 days after I threatened to report the accuser’s mother to police (2-1-97), for her recent drug abuse while (unknown to me), she was serving FELONY PROBATION! On 2-6-97, the Sheriff’s Juvenile Investigator JAB, received what were that evening proven to be FALSE allegations from my live-in girlfriend’s violently jealous husband, JP (longtime LEADER of the KU KLUX KLAN in a nearby county), which led to JAB making herself and JP LIABLE for civil lawsuit damages which I also that evening threatened would be filed by SPP’s divorce lawyer and my civil expert ASAP, due to their ABUSE of the children by making them cry, over and over, for 3 1/2 hours, with no food and no drinks. As we were leavi(JAB (who knew me and the accusers very well since 1989 at least),
