Clearing Criminal Records in Pennsylvania

Jason Morris

According to the Evening Sun:

CLEARING THE RECORD: Certain former offenders who remain crime-free for several years would have a chance to clear their criminal records under a bill passed 198-1 by the House.

The bill would apply to people who have committed summary offenses, second-degree misdemeanors under the age of 25, and third-degree misdemeanors. They would be allowed ask county courts to expunge their records within 5 to 10 years after their release, depending on the nature of the offense.

Under current law, offenses can only be expunged from the criminal records of people who have been dead for three years or who have reached the age of 70 after spending 10 years crime-free following their last confinement or supervision. The measure goes to the Senate, which passed a measure in April to allow the expungement of summary offenses only. (House Bill 1543)
