Hi,

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

You need to talk to your son's lawyer to make this come about, but, yes, the judge can dismiss the case before the court date and order your son released if he wishes to. Here, since the DA agrees that a dismissal is appropriate, the dismissal will be granted and it's only a question of when. Your son's lawyer can help this get expedited.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
