I’m writing in regards to the way North Platte and maybe other counties in Nebraska is handling certain county court cases. I know for a fact of a gentleman that was arrested for DUI a year ago in March. Because he is of some interest to myself, I have watched via the court website that he still has not been to court and sentenced for that offense! Not only has he not been sentenced but he has had a court date every month and a half for the past year! I’d like to know, even if he is paying an attorney, how something like this gets put on the back burner and what it is costing our county/courts to have him on the schedule routinely for a year without any outcome??? I understand a fair trail, speedy trial and the like but come on people, this is ridiculous!
