Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for the form. I could not find that on any of the court websites.
I only have one more question after looking over the form. I don't really know what to say for, "State concisely all the grounds known to you for vacating, setting aside or correcting your conviction and sentence." When I first wrote the letter to the prosecutor asking for help I really didn't think anything would come from it. I didn't expect him to respond. In the initial hearing for the check I did plead guilty, obviously I did write the check. However, he had told me that if I paid it then it would be dropped. The issue came from the arrest because I apparently didn't know about some fees I had to pay for. It was more of a misunderstanding mistake. I have never been in trouble and did it on my own thinking it would be simple. Mistake. The prosecutor is willing to set it aside thankfully but I need to make sure everything is filed properly at court level so that it will go through the judge. Do I state all that as my reason? Not really sure what to state for that answer other than the obvious, it is killing me being on my record with me being a medical student. Something tells me that won't be an "official" enough of an answer for the judge.
