My question involves criminal law for the state of: Mississippi.
My cousin was involved in a bar fight a couple of months ago. He was charged with simple assualt. He pled guilty and paid a fine and the case was closed. Punches were exchanged between my cousin and the other patron, with both recieving bloody noses and lips. Both refused medical treatment at the time of the fight. Now my cousin is worried that he may be recharged with something in the future should the other guy suffer a seizure or claim some brain injury, or worse, somewhere down the road. Since my cousin pled guilty to the simple assualt and paid the fine, is that the end of it, or could the case be reopened again in criminal court for any reason???
