Criminal Expungements in PA

At Curcillo Law, LLC, we believe that no one should face a lifetime of consequences for a mistake they may have made. When you or a loved one have been convicted of a crime, your record remains for the rest of your life. This can prevent employment and educational opportunities, as well as label you into the future. When you have repented for your crime and moved on with your life, you should not be forced to carry this burden as well. If you are wondering if your Pennsylvania criminal record may be expunged, our law firm may be able to help! Our blog explains when a criminal record can be expunged and how you can make this happen.

Can My Conviction Be Sealed?

Expungement refers to the legal process of sealing arrest and conviction records, meaning that it does not need to be disclosed to employers, landlords, or the general public. The only people that may be able to see the record is law enforcement, and this can be used in connection with any additional arrests that may be made.

If you were accused but not convicted of a crime, you may simply ask the court to expunge the arrest record. If you were convicted, you need to know if your crime is eligible for expungement.

Crimes that can be expunged in Pennsylvania include:

  • Offenses resolved through an Accelerative Rehabilitative Disposition program except for sex crimes against a minor;
  • Purchase, consumption, or possession of alcohol offenses for those over the age of 21 with successful completion of sentencing terms;
  • Summary offenses that occurred at least five years before with no additional criminal proceedings; or
  • Crimes that have occurred before you were 70 years of age and over 10 years have passed since any criminal proceedings have been brought against you.

Wondering if you may be eligible for a record expungement? Consult with a Harrisburg criminal attorney at our firm in a free consultation! We can help you determine if you are able to have your record expunged and file the proper paperwork to bring to court on your behalf.
