Our son was arrested and went to court for a felony charge, possession of a controlled substance.  On the judgment was a note saying PH 10 DAY RULE and PH 60 DAY RULE.  What does that mean??  This is in New Mexico.  Anything he should do?

When charged with a felony, if not prosecuted by indictment, you have the right to a preliminary hearing which is a probable cause hearing.  That hearing must be held within 10 court days or 60 calendar days unless the defendant waives time for the hearing.
