Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

Clerical type errors are not typically helpful in criminal cases. Whatever it happens to be, whether there is a clerical error or not, has no bearing on how your case will be resolved. So, in short, unless the arrest date is a necessary part of the crime committed and whether it can be prosecuted (in this case, it's not) it doesn't do any good. Instead, your lawyer should focus on the process of the arrest itself and any facts surrounding the case that may aid in your defense.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
