Question: I'm 36 yr old female attending college who lives on her own with two children. I have been charged with criminal cases but they have all been DISMISSED. When charged with this case i did 8 days in the county jail and at my arraignment was released on an OR bond. In this case when i originally took the marIjuana to the prison I cooperated with the detectives and then charged nearly a yr later.
Answer: If the cases are dismissed from MUNICIPAL court, they can still be re-filed in the Common Pleas court if you are indicted by a grand jury. One would have to know the reason the charges are dismissed, and in which court they were dismissed. I would be surprised if a prosecutor simply dismissed the cases for no reason. If you are indicted, and convicted, a Felony of the third degree does not carry a presumption of prison, unless you were an employee of the department of corrections. Then, it carries a mandatory prison sentence.
