  1. That is an easy correction. Your case will not be dismissed for a wrong d.o.b.


  2. The error is not cause for a dismissal.


  3. That would be considered a scrivener's error which can be easily corrected without being fatal to the State'd case. Your case will not be dismissed for an error like this.


  4. That would be nice, but no the case will not be dismissed because of a wrong birthdate.
