Meyers v. State

In Meyers v. State, 2005 WY 163, 124 P.3d 710, 715 (Wyo. 2005), the district court indicated it had the "inherent" power to dismiss a charge "in the interests of justice," but declined to do so. The Court affirmed the district court's refusal to dismiss a charge after the defendant had been subjected to two trials, each ending in a mistrial. The Court found it unnecessary to determine whether the district court had the inherent power to dismiss the charges under the circumstances presented there because it was obvious the district court did not abuse its discretion by refusing to dismiss the charges.
