Re: Can an Officer File a Dismissed Charge As a New Charge
was the charge dismissed with or without prejudice?
charges are often dismissed if there does not appear to be enough evidence to sustain a case but as long as they are not dismissed with prejudice, if additional information or some other change of the situation would possible allow the charge to be sustainable, the charge can be refiled.
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.
