    That isn't entirely correct. Pending charges for what otherwise would be a prohibitive conviction are in fact prohibitive.

    Only asked because I have personal experience dealing with a local DA who I witnessed issues with several years back. Regarding expungement of a sibling's record after completing ARD.

    Ard is for expungement, what issues could he have? How expensive is expungement?

    I looked into my case some more, and from what I know, a written allegation was filed against me for cyber harassment of a child (M3) and a summary offense for harassment. I completed informal adjustment as a juvenile to avoid a conviction or adjudication, and the result was my charges were expunged and the case was dismissed.

    I'm pretty much expecting a delay by now just so whoever is looking into this is absolutely sure I'm not prohibited, but is there anything I'm missing? This site has been so helpful getting information before and I just wanted to be sure so I don't do anything wrong.
    I'm pretty sure this is the third time you are asking this question regarding your situation.

    Call or message Gun Lawyer, pay the few hundred dollars for the legal evaluation, and just get it done.
    Nobody here can magically solve your problem no matter how many times you ask it.

    You basically have two choices.
    You can roll the dice and take your chances blindly with an application submitted into the system.
    You can talk to a lawyer and find out exactly where you stand and what your options are before you submit an application.
    There is no magical third choice that is going to materialize here.

    God knows I've done some gratuitous hand holding in my time, usually when there was pussy involved, but this is getting ridiculous.

    Maybe some of you guys have found a better way, but I seem to do an awful lot of hand holding.
