The short answer is no. Double jeopardy is being tried for the same crime twice. What you seem to be describing should be discussed with a criminal defense lawyer. If you can't afford one, the court will appoint a lawyer for you if you ask for one.

Q: How do I get my arrest record expunged it's a couple of misdemeanors, I have no felony.

I have not had any contact with the police department and about 25 years

Dale S. Gribow
Dale S. Gribow answered on Oct 30, 2019

AFTER ½ THE TERM OF PROBATION ORDERED BY THE COURT IS UP, (OTHER THAN A DUI) , you CAN FILE FOR EARLY TERMINATION AND EXPUNGE your record under 1203.4 PC.

HOWEVER, It is far from automatic based on a new law and is discretionary with the court.
