Rather what that does do is strengthen the possibility of there being a speedy trial violation, since the State only has a certain amount of time to take...Read more »

No. With the way that it works in Mississippi, there are certain crimes that are statutorily automatically considered violent felonies, so it would not have to be included on an indictment that the underlying crime is considered a violent crime.
