Question about Court Dismissal (virginia)

Asked over 1 year ago - Arlington, VA

A friend of mine was falsely accused for stalking in Northern Virginia. He was not arrested, but he was brought on charges and asked to show at court. After the first day, his attorney stated that after a month of no contact, the case will be dismissed. There was no oping for any sort of program, the only thing he knew is the lawyer arranged for the case to be dismissed, and he signed a form. Anoher issues is the lawyer had only communicated with him once in an almost one year period. Around 8 or so months.

The court day of dismissal is 5 days from now. So he is not sure what he signed and what will happen. He also does not know if he will be compensated for the false charge.
