Free Pardon Applications

Many people that were once ineligible for expungement in Pennsylvania may possibly be eligible in the future.  State Senator Tim Solobay recently reintroduced a bill, Senate Bill 391, to allow individuals who have misdemeanors of the 2nd and 3rd degree can apply to have the records expunged if they have kept a clean record for 7 or 10 years.  The current law states that crimes other than summary offenses can not be expunged until after the offender turned 70 years old or has been deceased for more than three years.  The bill was officially amended on February 12, 2012 with a 14-0 vote.  If this Bill passes, those who are eligible under the new expungement law can potentially change their lives and remove the stigma that follows a criminal judgment.

The proposed expansion to PA expungement law, Senate Bill 391, has been referred to the Appropriations Committee where it needs to be scheduled for consideration by the Chairman, State Senator Corman.  Please call Senator Corman’s office on this toll free number (814) 355-0477 and simply let him or his staff members know that you want him to allow a vote on Senate Bill 391 (The expungement bill).
