    An "no information" means the prosecutor dismissed the case before formal charges like an information was filed. A "nolle prosequi" means the prosecutor dismissed or dropped your case after formal charge or information had already been filed . Both mean the case against you was dismissed.

    Most private attorneys file a written plea of not guilty & waiver of arraignment, therefore the court waives both the attorney & defendant's appearance. You should not be concerned. It is a common practice.

    The statute of limitations for a theft is usually 5 years. If it is alleged that you stole >$300 then it is a felony theft. The state usually requests a warrant for a felony charge. That could be why you never received a summons in the mail.

    If the state can prove that your brother broke into someone's house, then he can be charged with burglary of a dwelling which is mandatory prison (maximum 15 yrs). The pawning offense is called dealing in stolen property which also carries a maximum 15 years. Your brother needs to hire an experienced attorney ASAP! Good luck!

    Unfortunately it will remain as a conviction on your arrest record or rap sheet. DMV will remove it after 75 yrs which does not help most people!
