Seek An Expungement To Keep Your Record Clean
For summary offenses, an expungement can be requested if you successfully avoid additional convictions for a period of five years.
As of 2016, Pennsylvania also allows nonviolent misdemeanors to be expunged from your record after sufficient time has passed.
By statute, people who have completed an Alternative Rehabilitative Disposition program are eligible to have all records related to that offense expunged.
It's crucial that the appropriate documents are filed, and all relevant agencies are identified in the application for expungement, and that they all receive a copy of the order - your expungement is only effective if the records have been erased at all relevant agencies.
