Like others I'm really happy to see you doing so well! Congrats, you've come a long way in a short time. It's amazing how getting away from the nightmare can clear things up, huh?
Regarding dismissing the request, I'd ask now. What's the worst that happens? You're told you need to wait? Ok. But you might be able to get rid of this thing now, so he can't work on it from in jail.
I hope you're able to shake this POS out of your life for good.
