Record Expungement and Diversion Programs in Pennsylvania
There are numerous ways to fight drug charges in Pennsylvania and build a strong defense, but there are also programs available that can allow your criminal record to be expunged and/or have your sentencing significantly lowered.
Probation Without Verdict (PWOV)
In Pennsylvania the Probation Without Verdict (PWOV) program will result in a full dismissal of your charge(s) and expungement of your criminal record.
Expunging your criminal record means to have it removed from the files of the Department of Court Records, Criminal Division, and other criminal justice agencies.
Having your record expunged means that your arrest will not affect your ability to own a gun or weapon and won’t appear on background checks — this is very important when applying for jobs and colleges or even housing. Usually, charges that resulted in a conviction cannot be expunged.
