Can I expunge my Pennsylvania criminal record?

handcuffs 2.pngIn the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, there are very few circumstances in which you are eligible to have convictions expunged from your criminal record. In fact, only summary offenses are eligible for expungement, and you must wait five (5) years from the date of conviction before you can make the request. Misdemeanors and felonies can never be expunged. However, there are two exceptions to this rule. First, individuals who are over the age of seventy (70), and have been free of arrest or prosecution for ten (10) years following release from confinement or supervision, can be granted an expungement of their record. Second, in most circumstances, those who successfully complete an A.R.D. (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program can have their charges expunged.

Drivers cannot be criminally convicted for refusing a blood test during a D.U.I. arrest

North Dakota which affects every driver who is stopped by the police on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This ruling will cause states to reevaluate how they process suspected intoxicated drivers. However, Birchfield also held that refusal to submit to a breathalyzer cannot be criminalized. While a driver who refuses a breath test to determine blood alcohol concentration will suffer serious civil consequences, he cannot be a convicted criminal.
