My boyfriend went to court today and was handed a paper saying “NO CASE FILED BY DISTRICT ATTORNEY” and the reason they circled was “district attorney reviewed the case and has returned it to the law enforcement agency. It is possible you will be charged at a later date”.
It’s an encouraging sign. He won’t be completely out of the woods until the statute of limitations runs out. But a minimum, the DA thought the case against him was flawed. There are some counties that even when the DA has made a final decision to reject a case, they simply say that they’ve declined to file charges “at this time”.
