Clearing Your Criminal Record After a DUI Arrest in Pennsylvania
Criminal record expungement is the process of removing specific arrests and charges from the criminal record. Not all arrests and charges may be removed from a criminal record, but some DUI arrests and charges can be expunged.
Criminal records should be expunged, if possible, so that employee background checks do not uncover records of the arrest and disposition. Furthermore, if you receive Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) you will not have to disclose a conviction or charge to anyone, including current or prospective employers. It is important to retain an attorney who can not only help you with your DUI record expungement but who will be diligent in making sure that Pennsylvania and federal agencies follow through with court-ordered directives and destroy these records.
It is important to note that PennDOT will keep a record of the DUI charge against you, even if it is handled through Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition and expunged. Some employers, like trucking companies, will still be able to find out about the charge. The information will also be available to law enforcement agencies in the event that you get a subsequent DUI or DWI arrest.
