This case really has not been going on for very long in the grand scheme of things. Outside of someone that takes a plea early on, cases simply do not resolve anywhere near as quick as television makes trials out to be. As you have learned in this case, it can be several months to get all of the Brady materials, and even there, not all of that (if any of it) can be given directly to the Defendant.

You don't say WHAT the Motions were...or what the outcome of those Motions might have been. Some are proforma while others are case-specific and are laying the basis for future appellate avenues should the need arise. Also not discussed is whether your son has exerted his right to speedy trial. If not exerted, it is constructively waived...although it is ALSO not often wise to push for that if counsel is not ready for trial.

YOU won't be able to step in because YOU are not the Defendant nor are you able to act on his behalf in court. You CAN get a copy of the Rules of Criminal Procedure either in the library or (likely) by going online. That will at least let you know a little more about why things move at a snail's pace.
FRCP--The law is called "next Friend". look it up. all his son has to do is go pro se and some one else other than an attorney can step in.--- the relationship between a prison and the court extends beyond just sentencing but in the back round.
