DiCindio Law LLC | December 6, 2015 | Expungement
When someone has been convicted of an Underage Drinking offense it may have harmful consequences on their future, their job prospects, their educational prospects and/or any licenses and certifications they may seek to obtain.
What many people do not know is that upon turning 21, if the sentence has been completed in full, including the license suspension, they are entitled to an expungement of the Underage Drinking conviction under Pennsylvania law.
Expungements are very commonly misunderstood. Many people believe that expungements are done immediately and automatically – they believe that as soon as the case is closed it is expunged. Instead, while they may be entitled or eligible for an expungement, a petition for expungement still must be filed.
Other people often mistakenly believe that upon turning 21 the case is immediately and automatically expunged – also not true.
Anyone who is now 21 who has been charged and convicted with an underage drinking offense is now entitled to an expungement in Pennsylvania if all conditions of their sentence/punishment have been fulfilled.
