Hello, We would like to know if any criminal cases were dismissed, prior to a first court appearance, as a result of The Buncombe County “Amnesty Day” on 1/25/19. Specifically, we would like to know any cases that were dismissed which did not have orders for arrests related to them, and/or for which the first appearance in court had not yet occurred. We would like to know the specific charge(s) and the reasoning justifying any dismissals. Additionally, we would like to know if any cases that had associated victims (other than Society/State of NC) were dismissed and if the victims were notified or consulted with regarding the handling of the case. Thank you.
