Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal; in New York state. In anyone's professional opinion how long usually is this probation period? I got arrested (for the first time) for grand larceny (felony) for stealing at my job, I've been going to court a few months and it's been lowered so far to a misdemeanor. What are my chances or how common is it for someone to recieve an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal? I'm looking for a straight answer not for someone to say "depends". I guess what I'm saying is that I would like someone to present a case of a worser crime or similar situation In New York where they received this probation. Thank you.
