    Answered . I'm not sure of your question. You would not want to reopen a case only the DA would do that. If you not convicted of a crime then yes go for an expungement. If you were found guilty then a pardon would be your only move.

    Answered . The Delaware County Public Defenders Office does not provide expungement devices . It is suggested that you contact a local criminal defense attorney that does. I would be happy to provide direction for you.
