I am in the state of NC and over 21.
I have put in for an expungement to get the final signature from the Judge before making the five copies and filing them with the Criminal Clerks' office. Or Step 6 on the Instructions for applying for an Expunction Under N.C.G.S.15A-145 or 15A-146
However, the Item was returned by the Judge with a note:
See AOC Notations - Multiple Offenses are governed by 15-146
(at bottom of note it states: Please return this note with your re-submittall)
Then there are highlights on the State Bureau of Investigation - Presiding Judge paperwork:
The attached AOC-CR-237 Form reflects the following concerns. We feel it is our obligation to bring this matter to your attention and solicit your assistance to resolve these concerns.
-General Statute (Please see next page)
--Multiple offenses-See attached Attorney General's opinion(is checked)
---date of offense 7/31/2005, 3/15/2007, 4/20/2007
-Over (at bottom of page)
--Please be advised that under 15A-146(a1), multiple offenses committed within the same 12 month period may be expunged
What does this mean???? What do I do next??? I am at a stand still, because I do not understand what any of this mean. The note attached mentions re-submittal...do I need additional paperwork to re-submit?
Any and all advice is needed. Thanks
