Can my boyfriends prosecutor enter a nolle prosequi without his consent?
Can my boyfriends prosecutor enter nolle prosequi after he has been tried and convicted without his consent?
Nolle prosequi is typically a motion made by the prosecutor prior to the start of the case. So it does not make sense that the prosecutor would do so after the conviction.
Why would your boyfriend object to a Nolle Prosequi? It's a good thing for your boyfriend, not a bad thing.
A prosecutor can nolle prosse a case whenever they like even if your boyfriend objects.
