Someone I know has been indicted on two charges (aggravated assault and felon with a weapon).said person has been offered the max sentence for each indictment. However, said person does not want to take the time and wants to go to trial. The public defender is cautioning that if the "deal" isn't taken, then the district attorney would then go back and re indict said person with an additional charge of repeat offender. Can this be done and if so, under what statutes?
