It’s about time! Imagine my dismay when I found out a stupid mistake made at the age of 21 will follow me until I’m 70!! This bill would give many people a second chance to start over. The benefits FAR outweigh the risks. Many studies have concluded that once a time period of FOUR years has elapsed, the chances of being arrested again are the same as a person who has never been arrested.
As someone about to request licensing from the state of PA with a misdemeanor from 13 years ago, this would be a God-send. I’d like a chance to support my family and move on? How long do we brand someone a “criminal”?? Do people not change? Can we at least be afforded the opportunity to show that we have changed? Please, pass this bill and gieve me and
