How far into a trail must a case go before double jeopardy can be applied? Is double jeopardy invoked when a case is dismissed in some cases. I'm not familiar if it only applies after a trial reaches its end and a verdict is decided, or if it occurs in some cases after a trial has begun then dismissed. I would appreciate if someone could clarify this for me.

Double Jeopardy is after a not gulity verdict. Until then the DA refile at will.
And then there are still games that can be played...
