Was "acquitted after trial" of "urinating in public" charge (HC 153.09 UM) in NYC? Do I have any record?

Asked over 2 years ago - New York, NY

Received a pink summon in Brooklyn, NY. Went to court in Manhattan, NY. Judge initially requested violation + $50 fine. My lawyer refused and we went to trial. I was found not guilty at trial. Arraignment charges on Certificate of Disposition are "HC 153.09 UM". Case disposition is "acquitted after trial". Do I have any record? Do I need to seal or expunge anything?

    Answered . You need to speak to a NY attorney. In NJ such a charge would be an Ordinance and would not appear on a CCH. However in NJ it would count as an arrest and depending on an application question would have to be disclosed. Again in NJ this would not appear on your CCH are be found one normal background check. But talk to a NY lawyer.
