What is the difference between a Section 18 and Section 991(c) expungement?

Section 18 expungement allows a person to expunge their entire arrest record.  A Section 991(c) expungement allows a person who received a deferred sentence to expunge their plea, and have the disposition of their case updated to show the case has been dismissed.  The disposition will say, “pled not guilty, case dismissed”.  However, a 991(c) expungement will not expunge (remove) the arrest record.
