first, any and all time spent in custody must count. second, if his attorney is not the reason for delays in the case, i.e. continuances on his part, then after one year a rule eleven can be filed to dismiss the case for lack of prosecution. this process falls under the right to a speedy trial. as long as your family member did not sign a waver rule 600.
Now as far as Judges and their "comments", i'll just say this, the power of his comment to affect ones [liberties] depends on the ignorance of the recipient. the power is in the pen/books. there is a law library where he is at. he can get clarity for himself by researching his case and every thing they say to him that seems wrong. if you need help just hit me.
