If it is your first offense, you should be able to enter into a Pre-trial Intervention program. This program basically consists of a psychological evaluation and anger management classes. Usually, if you do those things and stay out of trouble, the State will dismiss the case by filing a Nolle Prosse (which means no prosecute). If your case is in Hillsborough County and you need an attorney, please contact me for further consultation.
