I recently obtained an expungement for a client who had previously charged with Simple Assault and Harassment for an alleged incident in Reading, PA. His charges had been dismissed over a year ago at the time of the preliminary hearing but still appeared on his record. When potential employers ran background checks the charges would appear causing him to lose out on job opportunities.
After he retained me I filed an expungement petition with the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. A little over 30 days later I obtained an expungement order which is then forwarded to the various agencies and organizations that retain criminal records. This wipes his record clean and significantly improves his chances in this bleak job market.
You may be eligible for an expunge in your criminal case if charges were ultimately dismissed or you were found not guilty. You may be eligible if you were only convicted of a summary offense or were previously convicted of an underage drinking offense and have since turned 21. There may be other circumstances where you are eligible due to age or for other reasons.
