Effect of allowing a motion in arrest. The effect of allowing a motion inarrest of judgment is to place the defendant in the same situation in which the defendant was<br>before the information was filed or the indictment found.29-25-06. Judgment arrested - Further prosecution - Acquittal. If, from the evidencein a trial, there is reason to believe the defendant guilty, and a new information or indictment can<br>be framed upon which the defendant may be convicted, the court may order the defendant to be<br>recommitted to the officer of the proper county, or admitted to bail anew, to answer the new<br>information or indictment. If the evidence shows the defendant guilty of another offense, the<br>defendant must be committed or held thereon, and in neither case may the verdict be a bar to<br>another prosecution. If no evidence appears sufficient to charge the defendant with any offense,<br>the defendant, if in custody, must be discharged, or if admitted to bail, the defendant's bail must<br>be exonerated, or if money has been deposited instead of bail, it must be refunded, and the<br>arrest of judgment operates as an acquittal of the defendant of the charge upon which the<br>information or indictment was founded.Page No. 1Document Outlinechapter 29-25 motion in arrest of judgment
