Can I get an expungement in Berks County, PA

There are only three reasons you can expunge a conviction for a misdemeanor or felony in Pennsylvania. First is if you are 70 years of age or older and free of arrest or prosecution for ten years. Second is you have been dead for 3 years. Third is if you have been granted a Governor’s Pardon (executive clemency). Most people who are seeking to expunge their criminal convictions are not 70 years of age, and nobody seeking expungement has been dead for three years. Most people who want to expunge their criminal convictions in Pennsylvania need a Pardon.

A Pennsylvania Pardon can help restore your gun rights in Berks County

We believe in the right to protect yourself and your loved ones, so we help hard-working successful individual restore their gun rights. Most people would not be able to live with themselves if their spouse or child were harmed and a conviction stopped them from adequately protecting their family. A pardon is often the only way to restore your gun rights if you are prohibited from possessing firearms based on a Pennsylvania conviction. Do not be fooled into thinking that you will restore your rights with Clean Slate Limited Access or Limited Access petitions, because criminal justice agencies will still be able to see your convictions and use them against you. Some people even erroneously call these “expungements” even though the records will not be destroyed and the petitioner will still be prohibited from possessing firearms. The famous saying is “there are no shortcuts” and when it comes to restoring your rights from a Pennsylvania conviction, that saying rings true.

What happens after you submit a PICS Challenge in Berks County?

What happens after you submit a PICS Challenge in Berks County?

After Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) receives a PICS Challenge, they have five days to provide a response. This response is very important because it provides valuable information, including “Possible Reasons for Denial/Undetermined.” It is very important to keep this document because you only have 30 days to provide supplemental information. If your firearms attorney has already conducted an appropriate investigation, it will be much easier to provide PSP with the information necessary to issue a reversal letter. In the event that the reasons for denial/undetermined are completely unexpected (e.g. mistaken identity) the remaining time must be utilized to quickly gather the documentation necessary to overturn the denial.

How can I find out if I can legally own a gun in Pennsylvania?

How can I find out if I can legally own a gun in Pennsylvania?

When you buy a gun in Berks County, the dealer must run a background check called a PICS Check (Pennsylvania Instant Check System). You can only run a PICS Check in connection with a transfer or if you are applying for a License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license). When you are filling out the paperwork to buy a gun or apply for a License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license) you should NEVER GUESS for any of your answers. If you fail the background check (PICS denial) when you are trying to buy a gun in Pennsylvania, you could face criminal prosecution for a felony! Even if you thought you answered the questions correctly, many people are still prosecuted for their mistake. At The Gun Law Firm, we have performed firearms eligibility investigations for our clients since 2016 to avoid this problem. We thoroughly review our clients’ criminal records, mental health records, and much more to determine whether you can legally own a gun in Pennsylvania.

Can I get a License to Carry Firearms (Concealed Carry License) in Pennsylvania

Even if you can legally own a gun, you still might not be able to get a License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license) in Pennsylvania. For example, even very minor drug offenses can render you ineligible for a License to Carry Firearms in Pennsylvania. Under 18 Pa.C.S. § 6109, if you have been convicted of any offense under the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act you are ineligible for a License to Carry Firearms. That means that if you have been convicted of even a minor drug crime in Pennsylvania, such as possession of a small amount of marijuana or possession of drug paraphernalia, you can’t get a License to Carry Firearms even if your conviction is very old. This is true even if you pleaded guilty and only paid a small fine. If there is a chance you may have been convicted of misdemeanor drug crime in Pennsylvania, you should not apply for a License to Carry Firearms without a firearms eligibility investigation.
