Maybe Not....

Looks like they might have a chance to jam these people up... "...As double jeopardy applies only to charges that were the subject of an earlier final judgment there are many situations in which it does not apply despite the appearance of a retrial. For example a second trial held after a mistrial does not violate the double jeopardy clause because a mistrial ends a trial prematurely without a judgment of guilty or not guilty. Cases dismissed because of insufficient evidence may constitute a final judgment for these purposes though many state and federal laws allow for limited prosecutorial appeals from these orders...." I think it is baloney that due to mistakes of the DA's office and Magistrates, that the the people will have to deal with a trial. They were wrong but it is not their fault others are incompetent.
