KIMBALL, J., concurs in reasons to grant assigned by Weimer, J.
JOHNSON, J., concurs in reasons to grant assigned by Weimer, J.
WEIMER, J., concurring in part; dissenting in part. After the trial court denied a state motion for continuance, the State entered a nolle prosequi.

I would grant to review this procedure. See State v. Love, 00-3347, pp. 1-5 (La. 5/23/03), 847 So.2d 1198, 1213-1216.
