New violation charges after hearing

Recommended Posts

if you have a hearing, and the charge is dismissed. Is it legal for the DA to to submit a new violation?


Define "new violation."


For example, if Bob has been charged with burglary and that charge is dismissed, there's nothing wrong with the DA filing a new charge for assault and battery.  If you're asking whether it's legal for the DA to refile the same charge, that depends on the reason(s) for the dismissal and whether the dismissal was with or without prejudice.
