Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/27/2017 -- Those ineligible for expungement will be interested in learning about Pennsylvania's new Limited Access Law. This law limits access, hence its title, to information regarding a citizen's criminal history to grant a citizen better access to employment, housing, and education. Those who wish to file for limited access and are in need of a criminal defense attorney in Warminster, PA, and its surrounding areas are encouraged to contact Keith J. Williams Law.
This law, which went into effect on November 14, 2016, allows individuals to ask the court to grant limited access to their criminal record information. Obviously, not all crimes qualify for this rule. Some crimes that can be restricted from the public's view under this law are nonviolent second and third-degree misdemeanors, including ungraded offenses, given that the individuals already completed their punishment from said convictions and stayed out of trouble for at least ten years.
An individual that qualifies for this limited access can file a petition with the court of common pleas in the same county in which the case was initially filed. This process notifies the District Attorney's Office of the petition, giving them the chance to file an objection. In the end, the assigned judge makes the decision to grant or deny the petition.
Upon approval, the general public won't be able to access the individual's criminal history, but it will remain available to law enforcement and state licensing agencies. For anyone who needs a record expungement lawyer or an auto accident attorney in Warminster, PA, should contact Keith J. Williams Law as soon as possible.
