6:13 pm
deal. but to actively go for a charge to get indictments from two different venues under four different charges, it's actually not that common. >> reporter: attorneys for both sides aren't talking before tomorrow's arraignment of dr. simon on the new charges. but after the earlier charges were dropped, the d.a. was pretty clear about pursuing the case. >> i think it sends the wrong message to the community. i think that one of the things i have done since i have been d.a., i have been extremely sensitive to the issue of gun violence. and i don't want that in our community. and we have to have some community standards. >> reporter: melissa griffin- caen also points out, double jeopardy does not apply in this situation. dr. simon was never on trial. it was simply a preliminary hearing specifically to determine whether there's enough evidence to go to trial. the judge said no. but these are different charges, lesser charges, there will be a preliminary hearing on these charges sometime after tomorrow's arraignment. >> interesting case. >> it is. >> yeah. all right. keep us updated. thank you. a new effort tonight to get
