Whether you are a college student attending a local University or a business professional, a criminal recordisappears and can prevent you from gaining lawful employment. In Pennsylvania, even summary offenses, such as public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, public urination, harassment and underage drinking will remain on your record for five years. This means that anyone, including potential employers, universities, friends and colleagues can view your criminal history on the internet, as it is of public record. We have successfully defended students at Villanova University, Temple University, Widener University, University of Pennsylvania, Penn State and Drexel University on various criminal charges.
In addition to pleading not guilty and forcing the Commonwealth to prove their case, you may be eligible for ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition). The Pennsylvania ARD Program is designed to divert first-time offenders from entering the criminal justice system. When a first-time offender is accepted into the Pennsylvania ARD program, the Commonwealth requires that certain court-ordered conditions are followed. The Pennsylvania ARD program requires a period of supervision, after which it will keep your record clean, increasing your employment opportunities. ARD can be an excellent option for DUI offenses. Contact Freundlich & Littman today at (215) 545-8500 or info@FreundlichandLittman.com to see if you may be eligible for the ARD program.
If you have already been found GUILTY or NOT GUILTY, you still must petition the Court to get your record expunged. Your record is not automatically deleted. Even if you were found not guilty, the record of the arrest will still appear and will be searchable by the general public, including employers.
