In my understanding, a violation of law (not a crime) can be sealed under the NYS law section 160.55.
To me, the only difference between pleading guilty to a violation and getting ACD seems that ACD will automatically seal the record after 6 month (if I behave during the time).
However, I also read that a violation will automatically be sealed unless the judge orders not to do so.
So what is the disadvantage of pleading guilty to a violation which ACD doesn't have?
I am charged for misdemeanor A and this is my first time to be arrested. I went to my arraignment last week and am going back to the court in a couple months. I am not a minor.
