I don't wasn't court I was saw the judge for the tv and he tells us the charges and after a week they give me a release paper and yes I have the paper with me
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.

I you look at the paper and tell me the name of the court you were in, I can get you information to search online if you have your name in the system.

If your name is ***** ***** system that means this case can still affect you. If you were never convicted of this crime, you may be able to get the records sealed.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.

Getting the records sealed means you get your fingerprints back and the arrest records. The case then will not show up on your record.

http://www.mohavecourts.com/clerk/copies.htm If you go to this website, there is a form for you to get what it says in your record. It costs $2.00 per page.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.

If you never had a trial or did not get charged with a crime or did not take a guilty plea you may be able to get your record sealed.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.

That means that you can say you were never convicted of a crime and no one can see this arrest record.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.
