I got ACD in August and it is going to be dismissed in 1 year. I wanted to know if it is possible to get it dismissed earlier, and how long would this process take? What documents do I have to present to get it dismissed early?
It is possible. You should put together documents showing a reason why the court should grant the early dismissal. Then the court has to agree to advancing the case. The court will probably want input from the prosecutor. Good luck.See question
How do the please bargaining process work? Is it just like cut and dry "No" or do the prosecutor give the lawyer an opportunity to come back with reasons why a certain please offer should be given. I am so curious how that process goes. How do you...
Every attorney, and prosecutor, approaches the matter differently. Each person has their own unique style and thereby brings a individual method. Much depends on the actual facts surrounding the case. It is an ongoing process, with certain time limitations that vary from county to county. Good luck.See question

As the law presently stands in New York, there is no way to get the record of a conviction expunged. Unless you are of the age where youthful offender status would apply, there is also no way to get the record sealed. You can always consult with a local attorney to see if there are any other options.
You can apply for a relief from civil disabilities which will take some of the sting out of the conviction.See question

"A friend of mine was arrested for Shoplifting at a Rite Aide. He was just released from a Mental Hospital yesterday. He was convicted of a felony 3 years ago. I don't know if there is anything I can do for him because the person who told me is le...
Very hard to say. It will depend on a number of factors. He may be released, with or without bail. The court may speak to him about the possibility of a diversionary program with some mental health counseling. You can always go to court and try to be present during the arraignment. Good luck.See question
My wife and I want to divorce now since we really can't be together anymore
No. You can get divorced if there has been an irretrievable breakdown in the marital relationship for a period of more than six months. You can find more information on the New York State Office of Court Administration website. Good luck.See question
And they did not have an offer. Is this a bad sign for me? They have a supporting deposition from the complainant. They do no have my side of evidence. But do this mean it is going to trial? What does this say about the direction this case is goin...
Don't worry. The options are still wide open. The supporting deposition just means that the alleged victim is showing some interest at this point in the proceedings. There are numerous factors that will come in to play and your attorney will have a full opportunity to discuss your side of the story with the prosecutor. Most cases are resolved without a trial, but that always remains an option should that be your desire. Good luck.See question
falsifying business records, and then realizing that the employer did not pay me for the week i worked, i guess assuming they would apply those monies towards what i allegedly stole, can the case be dismissed on the fact that they already took mon...
It is unlikely that the da's office will agree to have this matter turned into a civil matter. The fact that there may be a credit on money owed might affect the amount of restitution but it is highly unlikely it will stop the prosecution. You should discuss this issue with your attorney to see if it might help your situation.See question
Can i still qualify for a diversionary program with a new misdemeanor charge? Would the persecutor not want to offer our because i avoided a criminal history the first time? Is it still possible?
Anything is possible but it would depend on a number of different factors. They may be hesitant to offer a conditional plea a second time but there is always the possibility that it will be considered. Discuss all the issues with your attorney in order to arrive at the best solution to your issue.See question
