Penal Code 851.8 says that "(f) In any case where a person who has been arrested is granted relief pursuant to subdivision (a) or (b), the law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over the offense or court shall issue a written declaration to the arrestee stating that it is the determination of the law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over the offense or court that the arrestee is factually innocent of the charges for which the person was arrested and that the arrestee is thereby exonerated. "
In my case, I had the court issue the PFI after the prelim. While I got a 6-page ruling with from the presiding judge, which simply ended with "the petition is granted." I never got anything specifically saying that I was found factually innocent and I was thereby exonerated. Any idea why?
