    You quoted the article correctly (the opinion says). It was the author that was incorrect.

    Update... on October 31st I filed a motion requesting permission to file a pro se motion... wherein I requested the court to not just order the dismissal but to dismiss with prejudice based or innocence or lack of evidence... initially the docket reflected that I was represented so I could not file on my own behalf... however recently the docket has been updated to reflect that my request has been granted and the court is now considering my innocence and lack of evidence claims... what should be my next course of action?

    I couldn't tell you that for two reasons. First, I don't have all the information needed to know what would be the next step for you. Second, even if I did, it would amount to the unauthorized practice of law (UPL) to give specific legal advice in this forum as I am not licensed to practice in your state. You'll need to ask a local lawyer for advice on that. You may not get that "day in court" (if you mean a new trial) that you say that you want, at least with regard to the charges you were previously convicted on and that have now been dismissed. The Constitution's protection against double jeopardy would prevent the state from bringing those charges again.
