You should be able to get this charge expunged, as long as the State does not object. Since Obstructing Official Business is a misdemeanor of the second degree in Ohio, you only needed to wait one year from the termination of your case to file.
However, you need to be aware that if you are going to be working in a field that involves patients, children or students, your expungement will probably have no relevance, as employers in these types of professions will be able to locate the...
You should be fine regarding your juvenile adjudication; as that is not a criminal conviction. As far as your adult criminal expungement; as long as your future career does not involve children, patients, or law enforcement, you should not have to worry. If it does, your future employer will more than likely find out about your prior history if they perform the appropriate criminal background search.

I think the first questions you need to answer are( is he mentally capable of committing the crime. You state that your son has issues. Are these issues the result of low IQ, i.e., mentally retarded; or is this the case of an axis I diagnosis, i.e., bi-polar, anxiety, depression, etc.)
If your son has such sever issues that he cannot help in his own defense, then your son's attorney may want to look into filing a suggestion of incompetency along with a written motion for not guilty by...
You should contact the clerk of courts in the county where you were charged with the DUI/OVI. They will have the documents you are looking for. Since you have not explained why you need the court documents, I cannot advise as to whether or not you need an attorney.
