Also ask for copies of what he's seeing where your records are in question. Hard copy makes follow ups with other agencies a ton easier.

If the case was dismissed and sealed/expunged, how did it even show up when they searched?
I would appeal it, no doubt.
My state doesn't allow expunging, which is obnoxious because that means my arrest will always follow me around. Forever.
I know that in Id and Az you can ask the AG of the state and that would not cost anything he is the top cop in the state and may have a answer for you
I am of the combo philosophy. Go consult an attorney so they are ready if the need arises. Then go to the processing office to try to straighten out the matter. If that doesn't work the attorney is still there and aware of what is going on. The attorney may even be able to guide you how to approach those at the processing office. If the Sheriff is the one you should talk to about this matter your attorney will know.

If the case was dismissed and the courts didn't submit the disposition info to the fbi the charge will show up as pending on your criminal history.

I would have a lawyer on stand by just in case of things going south.

Its been a while, but basically what happened was..the charge that was expunged had never been sent out to the FBI, or BCI (Bureau of Criminal Investigation) as my expungement paperwork said would happen! So as a result it still appeared on my record! I had to fax in my paperwork showing it was expunged and it was consequently removed.. Unfortunately, I had to reapply and pay the fee again but am waiting to be accepted the 2nd time around..
Well I hope that it works this time
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Appeal this. I woud not go the lawyer route first.
Most people are reasonable. There was a simple mistake somewhere and reasonable people would understand and fix it.
Of course you need to get this straightened out. If it popped up here it will pop up again and again -- and not just when applying for your handgun permit.
Definitely get it straightened out. You don't know what other surprises await down the road if it isn't cleared from the system.
