I watched a couple of episodes. And have to ask...Do people arrested ever go trial? Three differents arrests: -One guy beats another guy unconscience and nearly dead. The cops make a witness drive down the street with them to identify a possible suspect. She says its definitely him. They then say the DA dropped the case. -Another guy gets pulled over and they find a giant container of weed. And the charges were dismissed. -A guy is busted with speed and possible credit card theft. Charges dismissed. Can someone tell me why they would do this? I can understand the dude with the speed. Since it was a small amount. But, the others. Does charges dismissed mean they are free or that they possibly could have pleaded to a lesser charge?? Thanks!
