    There are many reasons why a sentencing can be adjourned. One common reason is that the pre-sentence report might have not yet been finalized and turned over to the judge and the attorneys. Depending on the case, for instance, if it was a sentencing after a trial, there could be an adjournment granted if the prosecutor requested additional time to have a victim come to court to offer to the judge a victim impact statement. Keep in mind most of the reasons for a sentencing adjournment are not...

    Generally speaking there is no required appearance to be made for the ACOD to be dismissed. If you were not given a return date then you will not have to be in court on the day it is dismissed.

    In order to give the best advise as to the case it would be best to have your friend contact a criminal defense attorney in the county where the charges have been filed. The details of the case and the background of your friend (first offense) will be very important factors. It is best for your friend to discuss this matter with the attorney directly so that the attorney and your friend can try to agree as to the proper strategy, i.e., plea bargain, perhaps an ACD or a pretrial hearing and or...

    Crimes of theft such as larceny, shoplifting, unlawful use of credit cards and filing a false instrument such as filing a car accident report to collect insurance when there wasn't any accident are examples of crimes that involve dishonesty. Criminal mischief is the destruction of property of another with out permission. An ACD can certainly be considered pretrial diversion. Good Luck-

    It is altogether possible that a case as old as ten years can be disposed of without you coming to court. The attorney would need to contact the prosecutor's office to try to find out if the case is still viable. Depending on the prosecutor's investigation then the case can be added to the court's calendar and disposed of. This will take a considerable amount of work and still may necessitate your appearance in court. Good Luck-

    As expected your friend would be facing the original DWI charges. The prosecutor may also have to decide whether to charge bail jumping. Ordinarily bail jumping would not be charged. Good Luck

    In order to change attorneys the judge will have to approve it and appoint 18b. You should inform your current attorney as to your concerns which you can then tell judge that you have done so. In the end, if you do not hire an attorney of your choice the switch will be in the discretion of the judge. Good Luck-

    It is possible that the court tomorrow will know about the warrant. You should try to clear up the warrant if possible before going to the court. If not try to have some additional cash on hand or have someone to call to post the bail on the warrant if it should come up.
