CRIM PRO-SPEEDY TRIAL                                                      

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of  1963  relating  to  the      
   speedy trial provisions. Requires that demand for trial be in writing.      
   Requires  the  defendant  to so notify the court if the court or State      
   proposes to set a continuance to a date beyond, on, or within 10  days      
   of  the  date  on  which  the defendant must be tried under the speedy      
   trial provisions.  Adds  procedures  for  releasing  defendant  before      
   trial  if  speedy  trial  provisions  are violated.  Provides that the      
   speedy trial provisions do not apply during the period  in  which  the      
   defendant  is  in  the  custody  of  the federal government, a foreign      
   government, or another state or county until the charges in that other      
   jurisdiction have been disposed of and that jurisdiction notifies  the      
   non-custodial  county  that  the  defendant  is available for release.      
   Permits an additional 21 days for trial after  speedy  trial  deadline      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Changes the time period in which a defendant who  is  in  custody      
   must  be  tried  from 120 days to 110 days from the date he or she was      
   taken into custody.  Changes from 160 days to  150  days  the  date  a      
   defendant who is on bail or recognizance must be tried after he or she      
   demands  trial.   Changes  from  21 days to 10 days the time period in      
   which the court must set the cause for trial if the defendant has  not      
   been tried within the applicable time period.
