Charges DismissedWhat is a Conditional Discharge in North Carolina?

In some ways, a conditional discharge is a lot like deferred prosecution.  In fact, many of the same terms and conditions for deferred, such as probation, may apply to a conditional discharge (and eventual charges dismissed).

The primary difference is that the defendant enters a guilty plea as part of conditional discharge, but the court does not enter final judgment.

How Can I Get My Charges Dropped?How Can I Get My Charges Dropped?

If you’re facing a criminal offense, whether felony or misdemeanor charges, it’s understandable you might be anxious.  The consequences of a conviction can be long-lasting and severe, making it hard to find and keep a good job.  That’s especially true for larceny, crimes of “theft or dishonesty” and drug charges.

As such, it makes sense to try to avoid a conviction if at all possible.  Charlotte criminal defense lawyers do more than review discovery, take cases to trial, or argue motions.  Indeed, a substantial part of our job is to consider options to avoid litigation and a criminal conviction by negotiating with the State (the District Attorney assigned to the matter).

Can my charges get dismissed?Most people want to avoid a criminal record and jail time, which is understandable.  While there may be legal options available that could ultimately result in a dismissal of criminal charges or even certain traffic tickets, there are a lot of things to consider including the fact pattern, prior criminal history, and severity of the allegations.

At the same time, it’s a mistake to assume charges are automatically dismissed.

Conditions for a dismissal may include things like Deferred Prosecution, conditional discharge, community service, drug or alcohol treatment, psychiatric care, and even an occasional letter of apology.  A lot depends on what happened and the type of criminal allegations, felony or misdemeanor, district court vs. superior court, etc.
