What is the name of your state? What is the name of your state? Indiana
Three years ago I confessed to my employer that I had taken money. I turned self in. Never in trouble before, nor after. 8 mos later I was summoned to court. During initial I told judge I wanted to plead. Proscutor gave me their "card". Contacted prosecutor and told them the $ amount they showed was way too much, but I would plead guilty - could they make misdemeanor? No. I said I would then look over evidence - didn't want to plead to more $ than I took if pleading guilty to felony. Their evidence was terrible. Asked for bench trial - received. Tried to plead guilty next court date. Prosecutor filed to dismiss with prejudice. 5 mos later there was an arrest warrant with 3 felonies - turned self in. Assigned public defender.
We requested the exact evidence that would show what I took.
Amount way less than what Prosecutor saying. Prosecutor offered plea agreement using $ that is not even close to evidence.
I refused. Asked for bench trial again. It is set for 7/02. It will have been three years since I admitted to employer what I did.
Prosector amended charges recently. Filed 18 felony charges!
(Evidence shows I took approx. $10,000 over 18 mos.) At initial for the amended charges, I waived and told court I was set for bench trial. This is unbelievable. Everyone knows I want to plead guilty and pay money back. My question: Should the Prosecutor's office have been allowed to refile upon dismissing the first time around? Charge was the same: theft.
