I was charged with alcohol - transport / possess open container in motor vehicle . After attending the pre - trial , the prosecuting official dismissed my case , stating , " motion for nolle prosequi is granted and the case is dismissed without prejudice . " So my question is , would I answer " no " or " yes " to the following question : Have you had any conviction dismissed ?

Nolle Prosequi is basically Latin for a dismissal. Your case has technically been dismissed, but without prejudice means the state can refile.

You were never convicted. The answer therefor is no.
