Can I request for charges to be dismissed?

1 Answers. Asked on Sep 20th, 2013 on Criminal Law - California
More details to this question:
I recently was cited for embezzlement and have an upcoming court date. I am a first time offender and just did something really stupid to help out a so called "friend" . Well I entered a civil featuring agreement with the company and have paid them in full before I have even went to court. Can I request the charges be dismissed at my court date?

yes generally, a first time offender for non violent crimes can get a program that involves completing classes, or counselling in exchange for a withdrawl of the charges. You may do better with a lawyer to ensure this happens.
