Thanks for your prompt answer .
Indeed they didnt have enough evidence to prosecute me. My girlfriend at that time refused to testify and wrote an affidafit to DA to explain what really happened that night, just a dispute that escalated and she called the police just so I can leave for that night, she even told them she didnt want me to get arrested that night but they told her since she called 911 , that was out her hands.
I spent 3 nights at county jail and after my Girlfriend posted bond I was released and I was surprised when I read the police report, the officers stated that she had scratches on her arms which was completely false ! We took dated pics of my girlfriend arms that show that she didnt have any scratches 3 days after the incident happened.
I never been arrested my whole life , no misdemeanors or anything and this is my very first suspected offense.
The DA did first object on the ground of status of limitations but Title 22 section 18 clearly stated that after one year if no charges were filed , a petitioner is eligible for expungement.
He came back later on to offer me by email a limited expungement that will expunge the arrest records from local databases but DA office could still charge me in the future .
The offer is also saying that I wont have to declare that arrest to any future employers or during an interview but i might be asked about it by law enforcement.
The reason he says he is offering me a limited expungement because maintaining such arrest records would be better for public interests that harming my privacy sic ??
Even though this is my very first suspected offense and Im an outstanding computer science major one semester away to graduate and start my career?
If I dont accept the offer what is the best step to decline his offer , just respond to his email and say that I would be declining the offer at this time ?
He emailed me today asking me if I received the offer he emailed me a week ago and I still didnt answer.
Let me know asap..
