States differ widely with regard to what, if anything they expunge. The good news is that Pennsylvania will allow felony convictions to be expunged. However, the bad news is when they will do it. You will have to be 70 years old and have no further difficulty with the law for ten years after the completion of the sentence
for the crime you're expunging. (See Link to Pennsylvania Expungement Law
Until then, you might want to try applying to the governor of the state for a pardon. While that doesn't remove the offense from your record, it would nevertheless constitute official recognition from the state that you have turned your life around. Your criminal
history would reflect the fact that a pardon has been granted. These are difficult to get, so they do carry some weight.
The Pennsylvania Board of Pardons
does the screening for the governor's office. Here is where you'll find a sample application form which you could download and work on. There are lawyers who specialize in pardons and expungement
though one is not, strictly speaking, necessary.
