4 years ago I was charged with two counts of Felony posession of heroin. Long story short- plead guilty under what my lawyer told me was a 90-96 which supposedly meant I would have a clean record after 2 years probation and what-not. Well, it has been a year since completion of probation, and I currently have 2 felony convictions on my record. I have sent the paperwork for this to be expunged but filed it under 90-96e and the request was denied. I have recently discovered that the 2 judgements were done 90-96 (a1). The problem I am having is that my lawyer tells me the clerk filed this wrong as the judgements do NOT say 90-96 on them but the plea agreement I signed does. I am currently now waiting on 2 attorneys to fix the judgement (which apparantly has to be done in front of a superior court judge) then file the expunction request. Can you explain the difference between the following fields on form AOC-CR-237
Expunction of records under-----90-96 b,d,e
Dismissal of charges and discharge of defendant under ----90-96 a
I have put off my last semester in school over the summer to get this straightened out but am getting nowhere. I am set to be done in December and know this may take 6 months or so once filed but am still unclear on what to do. If this was indeed a 90-96 a and I file under the latter, will my record be clean or will I still have to expunge the records of the charges?
Thanks for any help on this matter
