Q. is it true that you have to be inditied before able to get a speedy trial for a felony
A: It is true that the right to a speedy trial does not attach until the case is indicted. It is also true that there is no right to a speedy indictment. However, you can usually force an indictment by demanding an Examining Trial to determine probable cause. This is only a good idea in rare circumstances. It is usually better to let them take their sweet time on the indictment because the statute of limitations clock is running. There are extremely rare circumstances where intentional pre-indictment delay can amount to a Due Process violation, but that is typically when a prosecutor is intentionally delaying to gain an unfair advantage... for example if your alibi witness was dying of some horrible disease and they just stalled until your witness was dead.
Q. Did Trevor go around LH after she left the ER?
A: The conviction was affirmed on appeal. See: https://law.justia.com/cases/texas/sixth-court-of-appeals/2013/06-13-00044-cr.html
Q. Can I take money from my girlfriends account without her permission if i have a right to the money and access to accoun
A: The problem is that you could be arrested and charged with a crime. If that happens, a proper defense will cost much, MUCH more than a "couple grand." The cheaper your defense, the more likely you will be convicted, potentially of a felony. If you win a criminal case, the prosecution won't pay your legal fees... they won't even apologize. Consider talking to an attorney who handles business law or civil litigation cases about simply suing her for the money.
