Why does the exception "Non-charge / Final Count (Guilty)" or "Non-charge / Final Count (Dismissed)" keep appearing on my Caseload Exception Report on Case type 1 or Case Type 8 cases?
This exception indicates that you have one or more charges listed on the Charge Screen, for the listed case number, that is considered a 'Non-Charge' entry. That Non-charge entry also has a Guilty (or Dismissed) Result Code entered in the Charge Screen in error.
According to the Superior Court Statistical Reporting Manual for Case Type 1 - Final Counts Resolved and for Case Type 8 - Final Counts Resolved, any Non-charge entry should have the Result Code N in the Result (RS) code field of the Charge Screen, and Non-charge results are not reported in the caseload statistics.
It is important, however, to record the N in the Result (RS) Code field, so that the information on the Defendant Case History (DCH) screen can be interpreted correctly.
Charge screen entries that are considered "non-charge" for the Caseload Report and will be considered a Non-charge entry for the purpose of the final Count Statistical Reporting, include the following entries:
- 00.00.000 (or any variation of "0").
- Traffic Infraction RCWs, as well as all Local Ordinances and Constitutional Violations not cited using a State RCW.
- Any item listed in the SCOMIS Code Manual of RCWs that has an N in the Stat column and a "00" in the Code column.
