My son's case "battery with serious bodily injury" was just dismissed with prejudice about a month ago, just a few days prior to trial due to lack of evidence. My son tripped and fell on his girlfriend. The police and prosecutor swore he beat her and threw battery charges on him, she was arrested with a theft warrant, they both were in county jail. The prosecutor put a no contact order on my son, after 5 months she bonded out he stayed in awaiting trial. While she was out they had talked a few times on the jail phone. Prior to trial they told him if he plead guilty they would not throw charges on him for invasion of privacy for the phone calls they made, he refused. As I mentioned above a few days before trial it was dismissed. He has been out of jail for about a month and has a good job. Found out today that they have a warrant out on him for Invasion of Privacy, A Misdemeanor. My question is if the case was dismissed, doesn't that mean anything and everything pertaining to the case be dismissed? They put the no contact order, not her. He has been in jail all this time for their false statements and is not guilty. How can they charge him for something that was dismissed?
