City Attorney Trey Riley said new evidence presented after the trial did not match the charging document. So, they dismissed the case without prejudice, meaning the city can bring charges against Sealy again for this case if it's warranted.

So it sounds like the City Attorney thought that something happened with the evidence that would have caused the case to be overturned on an appeal so they cut bait with the option of refiling the case down the road (but I am not sure why double jeopardy wouldn't have attached).
