You need to go to the court directly to examine the court file to see for yourself what it states and do not rely on online records which may not be accurate. Background check companies can only find records that are available in the public records somewhere and they find things because many times some computer
records that were published online remain, but you need to search your name online to try to find out and also in a background check, under the Fair Credit Reporting Act they must provide you with a copy of the information they discovered so you can dispute it or have it corrected.
As far as the DA, you have to find the court record to find what it says in the file about that and if you find it was a DA and you are eligible for expungement, file for expungement right then while you are at the court clerk's office and they have blank motions for expungement for you to complete and file.
