Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. What does nolle prosequi mean?
A: Nolle prosequi is a motion by the prosecutor indicating that the government is not going forward with a charge. It has the same impact as a dismissal. It is typically a dismissal without prejudice, so at least theoretically, the government may be able to reinstate the charges at a later date.
Q. Hello, If charged with petit larceny 3rd- offense class 6 felony. Is it mandatory that I go to jail?
A: No, petit larceny as a third offense is a class 6 Felony. There is no mandatory jail time. However, that doesn't mean that a punishment involving jail time isn't possible, or even likely, it simple means it isn't required. If you are found guilty a judge can give 0 days in jail up to 5 years in prison at their discretion.
