Criminal Law: Dismissal – Double Jeopardy – Statute

Where a trial court declared a mistrial in defendant’s statutory sodomy case after jury could not reach a verdict and the defendant never consented to dismissal without prejudice, Section 56.087 provided a statutory bar to the re-filing of the case, and the trial court did not err in dismissing it with prejudice.

Judgment is affirmed.
