Pennsylvania's "Clean Slate Act"

Pennsylvania has passed a "Clean Slate Act," for those who want to seal their criminal record.

Act 56 of 2018 (“Clean Slate”) goes into effect on June 28, 2019. Clean Slate uses an automated computer process to identify and shield from public view:

(1) offenses with dispositions that are not convictions,

(2) summary convictions more than 10 years old and for which payment of all court ordered financial obligations is complete, and

(3) convictions graded as a misdemeanor of the 2nd or 3rd degree, or ungraded wherein the defendant has been free from any other felony or misdemeanor conviction for 10 years and completed the financial obligations of the sentence.
