Review of client file and possible representation in expungement petition

JS was a Prisoner of War. He has one felony conviction that he would like expunged. He served time in jail and can obtain proof of incarceration. There was a $42,655 fine attached to this sentence, but his understanding is that it was waived by the prosecutor’s office. He never paid any part of it and no one has tried to collect any payment since 2007. Client would benefit from the help of a volunteer attorney to first ascertain whether this fine was dismissed, proceeding with caution in case this fine has not been waived and a phone call could trigger a warrant. If fine is settled, then client has a straightforward case for expungement of his single felony conviction.
