Being that I am permanently disabled and on disability diagnosed with a mental disorder, wouldn't they have to state clearly that the meaning of dismissed without prejudice means that they can bring the charges up again? How is it that the state can enter into a contractual legal "contract" with a citizen and then just act like it was never said and had no meaning whatsoever. Moving caused me alot of mental pain and anguish being that I am diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic. The charges that they are bringing me up on are actions that are documented as being part of my mental disorder. How is that legal being that a doctor has stated that part of my disorder is uncontrolled yelling.
