As an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney I am regularly asked about ACD’s. I was in the town of Cheektowaga recently for a client of mine who was charged with shoplifting. For a first offense I am usually able to negotiate an ACD, which is an abbreviation for adjournment and contemplation of dismissal. What this means is, if you stay out of trouble for the next six months, fulfill any condition that the court imposes, then the charges will be dismissed, your record will be sealed and expunged, and this will be like it never happened.
Were you charged with a crime and want to know if you can get an ACD? If so, contact Cheektowaga Criminal Defense Attorney Arthur Pressman.
