On or around 01/05/2019, I have sent the 851.8 form to the "Department of Justice " in Sacramento. As of 2/22/2019, I haven't heard a response back from them or know the progress of status of what they are doing?
Anyway to find out what is going on?
Nothing is going on because YOU sending it to them has no effect. The arresting agency has to send it once they agree. If you read the instructions, it very clearly tells you "DOJ does not accept denied petitions or record sealing documents from the public."
