Have you been convicted of a DUI or disorderly conduct or harassment? Were you convicted of an offense as a juvenile? Has your record caused you problems or are you concerned that it might?
The State of Pennsylvania has recently passed laws that allow convicted offenders of several comparatively minor crimes to have their criminal records expunged, which is the legal term for cleared.
Once a record is expunged, you no longer have to answer “yes” to criminal conviction questions on job applications, and schools and landlords will no longer pull up arrest and conviction sheets in criminal history checks.
