Felony charges appear on your record forever in Pennsylvania. A misdemeanor criminal offense conviction may come off your record after seven years, but it depends on the type of crime. It is only possible if you have not had any new charges during that period.
Not all misdemeanors are eligible for expungement, including those involving violence, weapons, or sex crimes. Expungement of summary convictions is possible after a time, depending on the degree of the crime, the defendant’s age, the type of offense, and other factors.
