Expungement Eligibility Clinic Nov. 4th

Is your criminal record a barrier to employment and housing?

 

Legal advice is available at no cost to you at an Expungement Eligibility Clinic on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm here at Employment Skills Center. The clinic is provided by Penn State Dickinson Law and MidPenn Legal Services.

 

Under the new Second Chance Law, some crimes or non-conviction data can be removed from your record. Experts will help determine if you qualify. Please note that the clinic will help determine your eligibility and help figure out next steps for those who are eligible–the entire process cannot be completed in one day.

 

Are You Eligible?

You may be eligible if you are a low-income resident of Cumberland County OR the crime was charged or prosecuted in Cumberland County. Crimes that may be eligible include:

  • Summary convictions that are more than 5 years old and non-convictions
  • No convictions in the last 10 years and you are over 70
  • 2nd or 3rd degree misdemeanor convictions and the crime occurred more than 10 years ago
  • Additional restrictions may apply

 

What Should You Expect?

  • Determining if you may be eligible for expungement or limited access
  • Determining next steps, which may include referral to an attorney at no cost.
