I have filed an application to get my juvenile record sealed. I just got the hearing date and the box is checked " You are ordered to be present at the hearing"
I read up on it, because I was under the impression I did not have to be present.
But, apparently, if you have been convicted of something of moral turpitude since, you must. As an adult I have gotten a petty theft infraction.
What can I expect at this hearing? Do I need a lawyer?
