Getting A Misdemeanor Expunged

Recommended Posts

I am a resident of Pennsylvania. I am in the midst of changing careers. I'm currently attending classes for this career change. Along with my coursework, I must complete an externship. However, I just learned that applicants will not be accepted into the externship program if they have been convicted of a misdemeanor. In 1992, I was convicted of a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge in Pennsylvania, when I was a college undergraduate. I was wondering if I could have the misdemeanor conviction expunged from my record, even though, I was over the age of 18 at the time of the charge. If I can have it expunged, do I have to report it on my externship application?

Hi @kitties10


Thanks for posting! FindLaw has a lot of materials on expungement you can check out:


Keep in mind, in order to withhold this information on your application, you would have to successfully complete the expungement process before submitting your application.


Best of luck!
