Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The simplest way to figure this out is to call the court clerk's office where the charges were filed and ask if an order of expungement has been filed. If so, that will give you the answer.
If the charge/conviction has been expunged, the court fill will contain a petition for expungement and an order granting the expungement......so you probably still need to take a look at the court file even if they've told you nothing shows up on the computer.
You'd have to go to the court clerk's office and look through the court docket books to find your case file number.....and then take a look at the case file.
Even if your charge/conviction has been expunged, the court record would still exist --- they don't shred the files.
So, there will be a court file somewhere if you were charged and/or convicted.
