The state is not obligated to pay for expenses incurred by people charged with crimes, even if the charges were dismissed.
The only occasion they may be required to repay the person is if there was some kind of police corruption.
Thanks for your answer. Thats what I though. No corruption he was just a jerk, I didn;t like being called a lier when I had witnesses
As a matter of public policy, the law does not require the state to repay the expenses because that would effectively discourage prosecutors from dropping charges if it cost their office money to do so. As a matter of policy, we want prosecutors to drop charges any time they feel it is necessary.
Sorry for the bad news. It sucks, but that's the law.
Can I help you with anything else?
Thanks again, no help at this time thanks again
