My case has been on going for over a year now. The judge won't accept any plea from me because of the "language" of the paperwork from the DA. The DA has tried several times now to change it to satisfy the judge but the judge won't budge. Without getting into the specifics, the charge was dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor (not sure if that matters) but I can't plead to anything.
Is there a time limit for how long this goes on? Can I be recharged if the case does get dismissed after they figure out the "language"?The charge was theft, which was dropped to a misdemeanor. I am not able to plead because the judge is being difficult and simply refuses to accept a plea. My hearing has been pushed off 4 times, and he still isn't satisfied. Karyn, the charge was filed against me 1 year ago. It still hasn't been resolved and I have been to court 9 times to date. Maybe I didn't make my question clear, but what I meant was, is there a time limit to how long a case can go on without being resolved? It's not that I dont want to plea, it's that the judge simply won't accept one.
