What is a Nolle Prosequi in Savannah?

If you are charged with a crime, the best possible outcome in your case is to have the charges against you dismissed. The legal term for this is “nolle prosequi,” which literally means “not pursued.” This is essentially a dismissal of the charges.

It is important to note that if a prosecutor decides to do this, they can bring the charges back against you in the future if they decide to pursue them later (subject to the statute of limitations). This is a key difference between a nolle prosequi and an acquittal at trial. If you are acquitted at trial, that is the end of your case and the charges can never be brought back.
