A Former District Attorney Now Fighting For Your Rights

ACD Adjournment In Contemplation Of Dismissal

This educational video on ACD, also known as adjournment in contemplation of dismissal was provided by Drew Fritsch, an experienced Buffalo criminal defense lawyer with over 20 years of experience.

  • Individuals often ask if they can obtain an ACD – adjournment in contemplation of dismissal.
  • The district attorney’s office sometimes offers an ACD to individuals with limited or no prior records if the crime currently before them is not very serious.
  • An ACD is accompanied by a court-imposed condition, such as restitution, completion of a drug treatment program, or simply remaining arrest-free for a specified period.
  • If the individual completes those conditions successfully, charges are dismissed and the record sealed by the court.
