Q: Can someone be charged for the same case and crime in 2 different Indiana counties?

The judge and attorney had pointed out that they acknowledge this, a motion for dismissal was entered in October however it hasn't been addressed and the 2 counties are passing him back and forth even trying to revoke the bond paid already in one county.
