Re: Can a Case Dismissed with Prejudice Be Used for a Murder Conviction
Were you prosecuted in a Guam court or a US court? While Guam is a US territory, it does have its own laws which are not necessarily the same as US law.
and why didn't your lawyer argue the inadmissibility of the evidence 12 years ago?
Beyond that, evidence is evidence. Although the other case was dismissed, that does not mean evidence discovered during the investigation of that crime is not admissible in some other trial. It all depends on the totality of the situation as to whether the specific evidence you are referring to would be admissible or not.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
