ACD 170.55 Criminal Defense Attorney in Central Islip, New York
Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal Lawyer on Long Island, NY
What is an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal?
In certain criminal cases, a defendant could receive an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal offer. This means that all criminal charges currently filed against you may be dismissed and the record of these charges will be sealed after a six month period of “good behavior.” If the defendant agrees to accept an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal offer and violates any of its terms, the original charges may be reinstated by the prosecution.
It is important to understand that you are not making an admission of guilt when you accept an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal offer under ACD 170.55. Moreover, in accepting a Contemplation of Dismissal Offer, you are foregoing your legal right to file a civil lawsuit against law enforcement for false imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution, or use of excessive force. In essence, an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal can make your legal situation disappear as if it never happened.
