Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post and am composing you an answer. You don't have to put your name on any question.

When a case is dismissed, it can be dismissed "with prejudice" or "without prejudice." If the judge dismisses it with prejudice, that means the case cannot be refiled again ever.

If the judge dismisses it without prejudice, however, the state can file charges again so long as the statute of limitations hasn't already run out on that crime.

How do you know if a judge dismissed with or without prejudice? It would have to be stated on the record at the time of the dismissal if the judge dismissed it with prejudice. If he said nothing at all, it would be dismissed without prejudice and the state could refile.

This is not uncommon. Sometimes the state can't go forward because, for example, they can't find their complainant or they don't think they have enough evidence. They dismiss, and then they locate the complainant who's interested in prosecuting. Or they get new information that allows them to go forward. So they refile.

Thank you. So what happened after you were arrested? There was no case and they let you go? How long ago did this happen and in what US state?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
