What Is A 30 Day Motion?

When someone is arrested, the State typically needs to decide what kind of crime to charge or if they want to file at all. Typically on arrest, the officer writes in a bond and the arrestee can bond out… But sometimes the financial circumstances don’t permit the person to bond out, or the charge is a ‘No Bond’ charge. In these cases, the State of Florida decided that the limit to sit in jail without being charged is 33 days. If the State doesn’t charge you, on the 30th day the Court will notice the State and Order you to be released on your own recognizance (ROR) on the 33rd day after arrest. The one exception is if the State can show good cause. Good cause is generally if the State is trying to obtain evidence and they have a valid excuse for not filing. This would be if something about the case was so complex that the State could not get it together in 30 days. That buys the State an additional 10 days. No matter what the State must file charges within 40 days or you must be released ROR even if you have a bond.
