Short description: 
CRIM PRO-SPEEDY TRIAL                                                      

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 to provide that the      
   period of time within which a person must be tried  under  the  speedy      
   trial  provisions  shall  begin  again  if  there is probable cause to      
   believe that subsequent to the commencement  of  any  period  of  time      
   within  which a person must be tried  the person violated the laws          
   of this or any other jurisdiction, other than by commission of a Class      
   C misdemeanor, a business or petty offense, or violated any conditions      
   of his or her bond. Provides that a person who has understandingly          
   waived his or her right to a trial by jury shall thereafter be              
   entitled to a trial by jury for any offense in which the person waived      
   trial by jury only if it does not require the return of witnesses who       
   appear on the scheduled date of trial or the defendant provides the         
   prosecution with timely notice of his or her intent to withdraw his or      
   her waiver of trial by jury or the defendant shows good cause why he        
   or she should be entitled to withdraw his or her waiver of trial by         
   jury. Provides that a demand for trial not reduced to writing shall be      
   considered insufficient to invoke the speedy trial provisions. Permits      
   trial within 21 days after the expiration of speedy trial deadline.         
   Effective immediately.
