Can I be charged for a felony again after my case was dismissed? 10 Answers as of April 30, 2013I was charged with obtaining property under false pretenses due to falling victim of a Craigslist scam and my attorney got my case voluntarily dismissed because I made an arrangement with the bank to get the money paid back. I fell behind on my payments and I am worried that I am going to get a knock on my door from a sheriff. Can I be re-charged for the same crime even though my case was dismissed? And I have no idea if it was dismissed with or without prejudice.

If you violate any of the terms of the sentence you could be re-sentenced to jail. You should find the money to pay the restitution or you will be charged with a VOCD, or a Violation of a Conditional Discharge.
