Re: Summons # G 197490
Dear Judge Rodriguez,
This letter is to request the dismissal of the charges associated with the above listed summons. When I was in front of you last, on March 17, you addressed my request for discovery by instructing the prosecutor to send me a letter with instructions on how to obtain that discovery. You instructed me to wait for that letter. I recall writing my name and address on a blue slip of paper in large letters and handing it to the prosecutor for the purposes of said letter.
Since that time, I have not received any letter from the prosecutor, but instead received a notice informing me that I have a new court date scheduled for April 9. If it is your decision to proceed with that court date, I will still have the same unaddressed request for discovery, while the prosecutor has not provided me with a letter pertaining to that discovery as was your instruction in this case. We would again be unable to move forward with the proceedings and my 6th amendment right to a speedy trial will have been denied.
In the interest of the township’s taxpayers, the court’s time, and my 6th amendment rights, I ask that these charges be dismissed.
