Was your case dismissed? Is that why you are filing a motion to seal your records?

Based on the records I requested I believe it was Denver County. The arresting agency is Denver PD - Identification Bureau. In 2005 I served about 4 days in Denver and then another 3 days in Boulder for failing to appear for an arrest the year prior for possession of alcohol. As far as I know my case was not dismissed.
