Default "Nunc pro tunc"?

Can someone please explain to me what "nunc pro tunc" means? Does my husband do this if a mistake was made on his record concerning a sentence that he never went to court for yet some how ended up doing the time for. (he has MANY charges of B&E) yet in this one case he never went to court in the county that he was gave a sentence for.

this is what i found about it. i think that that is what he needs to do, but im not a lawyer so i may be wrong. hope this helps.

Nunc pro tunc literally means "now for then."

Occasionally, a court or party to a divorce forgets to file the papers necessary to obtain the final decree (after the interlocutory judgment has been granted), and the result is that the divorce never becomes final. If the oversight presents a problem (for example, one party has already remarried, or there is a tax advantage to being divorced earlier), the court may agree to issue a nunc pro tunc order, which grants the final divorce retroactive to the earlier date.

This phrase is used to express that a thing is done at one time which ought to have been performed at another. Leave of court must be obtained to do things nunc pro tunc, and this is granted to answer the purposes of justice, but never to do injustice. A judgment nunc pro tunc can be entered only when the delay has arisen from the act of the court.
