    Answered . I don't know what you mean by "throw away your sentencing hearing." A hearing isn't a thing that you can "throw away." You certainly shouldn't blow off your hearing, if that's what you mean. If you're going through a criminal prosecution, you should consult with an attorney, and do what they say.

    Answered . A hearing is an event, not a physical object - so it cannot be thrown away or "disposed." If you were convicted, then you were also sentenced, and the court will have a record of that sentencing hearing. You may need to go to the county courthouse where you were convicted in order to get the right records.
