A: Usually, it is ten days after arraignment or the filing of waiver of arraignment, unless the court orders otherwise. You should contact the DA to find out why you have not received the discovery. You may want to verify they have your correct contact information. If they have your correct information, a motion to compel may be your next step if it has been longer than 10 days.
