Can you be re-charged or the case re-filed, if the case was dismissed with prejudice before it went to trial-even before a pretrial hearing. understand that my Defense Lawyer and the prosecutor were in agreement to dismiss this case and not to pursue it. It was dismissed 30 days after my arrest. I have never been arrested before and not knowledgeable about the proceedings of the law, and what all of this means? When will my record be cleared?
