A Stet is a status of a criminal case in a Maryland Court. When a case is marked Stet, it means that the case is inactive and it will not be prosecuted as long as the defendant abides by the conditions of the Stet. The Stet is a initiated by the State's Attorney and they Judge must approve the Stet. When a case is marked Stet, that means the file is placed on a shelf for three years. The first year the case can be reopened for any reason and the following two years it can only be reopened upon a showing of good cause to the Court. After three years, the case can be expunged.
