A man who has already spent seven months in custody over an alleged Border crime spree has expressed frustration with ongoing legal delays.
Kevin Michael Kennedy is facing 42 charges, spread over two separate charge sequences.
But his matters are yet to reach the point of charge certification, which would pave the way to a committal for trial or sentence.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Kennedy has been in custody since July of last year over allegations related to burglaries on dozens of premises.
The practice note guiding NSW magistrates on the progress of matters through the Local Court specifies charge certification must take place within six months.
Director of Public Prosecutions representative Yanina Wojcik said both matters involving Kennedy would be ready for charge certification on February 18.
"There is a co-accused in this matter (also listed for charged certification on the same date)," she said.
But defence lawyer Dean Rutherford, of the Aboriginal Legal Service, said Kennedy had become frustrated with the number of adjournments taking place in the case.
"I know that my client is getting a bit impatient with that," he told magistrate Richard Funston.
The court heard that a case conference to be held between the prosecution and the defence would outline to Kennedy the case being brought against him.
It would, at that stage, then provide him with the material needed to decide whether he wanted to plead not guilty and therefore have his matters proceed to trial in the District Court, or guilty and face sentence.
Delays in the matter were first highlighted in September, largely due to the complexity of the allegations.
Kennedy was further remanded in custody.
