HPD's Rookie Rapist?

Double Jeopardy or Not

What does Double Jeopardy mean if they can still try you all over again years after an acquittal?  I won’t begin to claim to understand the fine points of criminal law since my practice was all in civil law but, of course, law school forced me to learn the basics and this case that Harris County pro…
