Re-indictments

My son was just dismissed of 2 firearm charges, poss. w/ intent coke charge, a felony escape and 2 misdemeanors. Two weeks ago his lawyer sent him a letter telling him that the commonwealth was going to re-indict him of the charges and I was under the impression that the only way they can do so is if they nolle prosq. the charges. Is that correct or can they still re-indict him after dismissing his charges in the pre-liminary hearing?
