Double Jeopardy: I entered a guilty plea to a felony crime
Double Jeopardy:I entered a guilty plea to a felony crime approximately 5 years ago in the state of VA. I did not have to serve jail time but I was put on the Sex Of. Reg. and put on probation for 10 years.

I want the whole case thrown out based on the possible misconduct (of course I would :-). What are you thoughts about whether I could still be charged for the same crime? Thanks.

False accusations of Domestic Violence were brought againstView more criminal law questions
False accusations of Domestic Violence were brought against me and not only did the judgment go in my favor, but she was caught lying under oath about there ever being any Domestic Violence in the first place.I am planning on taking her to court for Defamation of Character as she is still telling everybody that I am guilty of Domestic Violence.Since the first trial was fraudulent, does that mean that I was never actually in jeopardy, therefore making it possible to be tried again on the same charges, bypassing the normal double jeopardy rules?
