The appellant challenges the denial of his application for habeas corpus, asserting that the trial court abused its discretion by not reducing appellant's bond amount or releasing him on a personal bond when the evidence showed that the state was not ready for trial within 90 days of appellant's arrest. The Texas Code of Criminal Procedure 17.151 § 2(2) exception is not triggered by a pending charge for which the state is ready for trial after the applicable time period has elapsed. The trial court's order is reversed and remanded. Fort Worth Court of Appeals, No. 02-12-00116-CR, 12-21-2012.
