Can my criminal charge be dismissed?
This is a common question that most clients have. There are ways to have a criminal charge dismissed, but there first must be grounds to do so. For example, if Marc A. Joseph, P.A. can prove that your constitutional rights were violated in the course of your arrest (such as an officer’s failure to read you your Miranda rights, and you subsequently made incriminating statements), or if there was an unlawful seizure of evidence, then a such incriminating statements and physical evidence may not be used against you. If this happens, there may be no other evidence to link you to the crime you were charged with, and the charge may subsequently be dismissed.
