  1. Hi Ms. Aizman, I apologize now if my question is silly. I just don’t know much about this.
    I was wondering if the Serna Motion can be used in regards to an arrest warrent/revoked probation?… And is the Serna motion only valid in Cali.?

    1. Hi Tara: You have a right to a speedy trial in every state. It is a constitutionally protected right, therefore the law applies nationwide. However, once the case is completed (i.e. a plea of no contest or guilty is entered), Serna no longer applies.
