Thank you for using JustAnswer!
Your son will have to contact to the court to inquire about the status of his court file to ensure that it was properly closed.
As a general matter, court files are a matter of public record and you could be able to review it yourself. However, it is possible that your son's file was closed in a non-public manner and, thus, you may not be able to access it. But the defendant/your son can.
So, tomorrow, your son can contact the court and follow-up.
Good luck and best wishes.
I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
