Can a DUI be expunged?
Until recently in Pennsylvania, if you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, you would not be eligible for an expungement. When we talk about expungements, what we’re talking about is the public record or the public database that would show that you were charged and convicted of an offense. So until recently, if you were convicted of a DUI, you would have to face the blemish, the scar of having that accusation and conviction on your record until age 70. Recently, the Pennsylvania legislature passed a law that would allow for an expungement of a DUI conviction after a period of seven to ten years. Even though you may be eligible for an expungement after seven to ten years, it’s on an automatic expungement. You need the file for an expungement, and it would make sense to have an experienced expungement attorney acting on your behalf.
