Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.
What were you convicted of?
Also, what specific question can I assist with?
None of that tells you whether you ended up with a felony, unfortunately.
I'm not sure what the "stricken off - leave reinstate" means for sure but most likely the case was dismissed at some point by accident and the court granted the DA leave to reinstate the case on the docket. That is usually set forth more clearly but that is the only thing that makes sense from that notation.
The "superseded by information" likely means that the original case was filed by way of an officer filing a complaint or a warrant and then later a formal "information" was filed by the DA. An "information" is a charging instrument kind of like an indictment but for misdemeanors.
What you really need to look for is the judgment issued in the case. That will tell you exactly what the ultimate resolution was.
I'm not sure what to say.
We can't guarantee that you get a specific answer or "the answer you need", all we can guarantee is that you get a correct answer based on the facts that you have given. I interpreted the notes in the only way that makes sense given the facts you've provided and then I told you what document you can look at to provide you the specific answer to whether you have a felony but I can't make the wrong documents provide the correct answer.
As to the price, that's something I have no control over. You can choose not to pay if you so desire, but that's between you and what you feel is right or wrong. I answer questions based on the price and an assumption that when I answer correctly I'll receive a positive rating based on that.
I didn't send you any message.
They are very confusing, and I've had these questions often. The courts and police departments use their own internal coding, and it makes it very difficult for the average person to follow.
What typically happens is that your original charging is listed, and the ultimate disposition is listed as well, but instead of indicating the final disposition like you would expect, you get the jumble in front of you.
What it means is that you were charged with a felony, but that it was pleaded down to a misdemeanor offense, which you were convicted of.
I hope this helps.
