I agree with Attorney Woolf. The attorney should review the details of the police report with the client. The attorney is not permitted, absent the court's permission, to provide a copy of the report to the defendant. If you have been appointed by the Probate Court as conservator of the person than you should contact the attorney to address your concerns.See question

I'm not attempting to reuse it, but when I meet with the prosecutor after pleading not guilty to an infraction, will he/she be aware of my past mistakes? How much will he/she know?
if you successfully completed the term and conditions of your AR and the charges for which you used AR were dismissed then the prosecutor will not be aware of it. Moreover, if you are discussing an infraction the only concern the prosecutor will likely have is your driving history. I wouldn't worry about it.See question
