Second Chance Legislation
Legislation headed to Governor Tom Wolf's desk seeks to help non-violent criminal offenders who have served their time. The bill would allow most 2nd and 3rd degree misdemeanors, such as DUI or vandalism, to be cleared from a person's record after they've paid their debt and if they remain out of the criminal justice system for at least ten years. Supporters say this will benefit ex-offenders whose criminal records have gotten in the way of getting a job or finding a place to live, even years after the offense.
