Under Pennsylvania law, the court has the power to expunge the misdemeanor conviction. Usually the court will do this if the defendant has completed probation and any other conditions related to the conviction.

My suggestion is that you contact the public defender in McKean County.

Here is the link for the public defender. They will not charge you for their services:

McKean County Courthouse
500 West Main St
Smethport, PA 16749

Philip Clabaugh,
Chief Public Defender
