When is a Dismissal via Civil Compromise Not Allowed?

A dismissal of a criminal case is only allowed in a misdemeanor matter when the judge determines that the injury or damage caused by defendant is capable of a civil resolution and that the victim is “made whole” (usually this means paid for repair or replacement costs) and acknowledges it to the judge. It can no longer be used in hit and run matters, but remains a viable resolution method in vandalism, graffiti, and other cases.
