Clearing A Criminal Record In Pennsylvania

Living with a criminal record can be a challenge, especially with the growing ease with which background checks can be conducted. More and more records are searchable online. This is leading to an increase in the number of employers who utilize background checks as part of their hiring process. A criminal conviction, or even simply an arrest record, can keep you from being offered jobs that you are otherwise qualified for. In today's job market, no one can afford to have a strike against them that they can do something about.

The two tools that can help clear a conviction or an arrest off your record are:

  • Expungement — An expungement can clear convictions on summary offenses, Accelerated Rehabilitative Dispositions (ARD) and arrests from your record. The process of an expungement can take several months from start to finish.
  • Pardon — A pardon can clear convictions for more serious crimes from your record. The process of obtaining a pardon is more involved, but it is the only way to remove the stigma of a criminal conviction from your record.
