How long can you be held in jail before trial in Kansas?
The state of Kansas will hold people in custody for 150 days if they have been arrested and 180 days if they are out on bond. You cannot be held in jail for an unreasonable amount of time without a trial, and if you are, you must be released. The Sixth Amendment guarantees everyone the right to a speedy trial. If a defendant waives this right, it can extend the timeframe.
