What does it mean when a jury trial is cancelled/vacated and a commitment record is issued?

  1. I would need to read your paperwork and inspect the file to properly give you an opinion as to what that means. Did you have a trial? Was a there a guilty plea? Was there a conviction? A commitment record only issues, typically, after a conviction.


  2. It seems to me that it means there was a guilty plea in lieu of a jury trial and the defendant was committed to either the local detention center or the division of corrections.
