I found the information on line at the Maryland court case web site:
Then went to the Prince Georges County Maryland court house and applied for expungment of the case. You can look up the case with only my first and last name. Case number XXXXX XXXXX
No reason was given for the denial.
Thanks for you advisement. I was informed that I will receive a summons with a court date to appear in front of a judge for this case in Prince Georges County, Maryland. The reason given by the District Court clerk why the case went from closed to active is #1 I applied for an expungment and it was denied #2 the case originally in 1985 was a summons and when that was not served it became a warrant after 90 days. I even called the Sheriff to see if they had a warrant, they replied no.
So it appears that if I just let the case go and stayed closed and did not apply for an expungment I would not now have a court appearance pending for a 28 year old misdemeanor battery case.
Obviously I need an attorney! I'm 52 years old and I've come light years from when I was in my early 20s. The circles I associate in now are mighty powerful. My attorney for this case is my neighbor and friend who just started his Criminal practice this year. He was previously the U.S. Attorney for the Baltimore, MD district. He successfully prosecuted the Prince Georges County Executive and his wife who are now both in federal prison. Do you think the District States Attorney will know who he is?
