It appears you might be eligible to petition the court for expungement, but more information is required to offer a legal opinion. Speaking to an expungement attorney about this on the telephone should help clarify any possible issues.

Yes they can charge you even up to a year later for criminal cases in Municipal Court. That being said I would suggest hiring a lawyer you may have a defense in this case. Most of us criminal lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I would suggest that you set one up.
I found a wallet and mailed it back to its rightful owner and now I’m being charged with theft I have to go to court for an intake conference.
answered on Jan 8, 2023
More information would be needed to advise you which you probably don't have but could be accessed thru the courts to properly answer your question. But it sounds like you have been charged with theft. The right thing to do with the wallet was to immediately give it to the police,... Read more »

The judge in a custody case is the wrong person to be discussing this matter with.
You need to communicate exclusively with the detective assigned to investigate the criminal complaint.
Don’t even bring the subject up in the custody case or the perpetrator will be able to use... Read more »

Sometimes for various reasons, the prosecutor cannot dismiss a bad case and will work the GJ to no bill to get rid of it. If the case is no billed it often is the end of the case.
