A prosecutor seeks an indictment for Charge X, but the grand jury returns a no-bill.

Is the prosecutor free to seek another indictment on Charge X from the same grand jury, or from a different one? Does it matter if the prosecutor has new evidence? Is there any limit on how many attempts the government can make?

Is the answer different between the federal government and the states?
