    These are still open cases so that is why you are being flagged as your charges are still "pending." After the ACD time period passes the charges will be dismissed. Having criminal charges dismissed is better then being found not guilty after trial. This has to do with the Legal Burden of Proof. "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" is not beyond all doubt. Now compare this with having all charges against you being dismissed. O.J. Simpson was found Not Guilty in his criminal case and liable in his civil case. Why? Well one reason was that the burden of proof was lower.

    It seems that since so much time has passed and the police have not issued a summons or contacted you since the incident, this time you will not be charged. However, you need to take this lesson to heart and not repeat such silly, unhealthy and possibly illegal behavior. If you need professional help get it don't wait until you kill someone or kill yourself.
