Thank you for your reply. No, that does not apply to criminal cases. Based on the limited information you have provided me, you were never charged with a crime. In that case, there is nothing to dismiss. There must be actual criminal charges filed in order for there to be any dismissal. Then, the only parties that can dismiss the charges are the State (prosecutor) and the court
upon motion during the hearing phase of the case.
The State has one year to file charges if they are charging a misdemeanor
and 7 years to file charges if they would charge a felony crime. Until then, they are free to refrain from filing any charges.
If there are actual charges filed, and you are asking how you can get them dismissed, then your attorney would make a motion to dismiss at your next hearing based on a legal reason (for example, insufficient evidence, the running out of the statute of limitations, etc. )
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
