Thank you for that additional information.
The only offenses in Iowa that are currently eligible for expungment are ones in which a deferred judgment was made prior to sentencing. What you are describing occurred does not seem consistent with this.
What I would suggest that you do is to contact the court where the charges were handled and obtain a copy of the court record, then make an appointment to see a criminal
attorney who practices in that court and have them look at to make a determination. You may also want to contact the public defender who initially represented you and ask them what the outcome of your case was and if you are eligible for an expungement
I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
