Q: How do i fill out expungement paper work?
Everything in my expungement packet is basic info and very easy to fill out. My packet has two sections. One for convictions and one for non convictions. I have three charges under this case. One was dismissed, one was amended down to the third charge of which is guilty. Obviously I put the dismissed charge on the non-conviction section and the guilty charge on the conviction section, but I am confused as to what to do with the amended charge. I'm not sure how that works. I obviously wasn't convicted of it, but in the non conviction paper work, I have to check a box in a list of boxes that apply to the charge being expunged, and non of them apply to the amended charge. Each box says it was either "dismissed with prejudice and was not in exchange for a guilty plea to another offense " or "without prejudice and was not in exchange for a guilty plea to another offense". But mine was in exchange for a guilty plea for another offense. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
