    Thanks!
    Have you contacted J. Michael McCormick? Last I knew, he was considered a decent 2A attorney.

    Why do you need counsel on that side of the state? Adam and I both handle issues across the Commonwealth.

    If the sheriff denies me, I would assume my challenge would be in my local court of common pleas. From what I read. Would it be wise for me to have someone local to do this for me?

    If itís a pics denial, and challenge, Iím a sure this can be done remote from any attorney.

    22 years ago, in Maryland, I was arrested and charged but never convicted.

I was told by the judge and my attorney that I can answer No to any questions about the arrest of charge, the expungement doesn't so much "close" my record as much as it "deletes" it. The order I got (and supposedly every agency involved got) specifically states that all records are to be destroyed.
    That said, a couple years later I was applying for government contract work and I kept getting ignored for jobs I was well qualified to do. Finally I asked someone at one of those employers "what the heck". He went out on a limb and actually told me why I wasn't hired, it was because of that arrest. I then went to a friend of mine who was a state ttooper, he ran my record and the arrest popped up. The judge, and my attorney were both furious that the court order had been ignored. the judge placed the offending agencies and people in contempt of court. It got fixed right away after that.
    The short story is, expungements should erase the records completely, not just attach a note to them. But, don't count on it without double checking.
    If you were not convicted, why did you have to do community service, and probation?

    Pre-trial intervention, or as we call it in PA - ARD.

    You basically have to pay the same penalty(probably, community service, fines, etc), but you don't have a conviction.

    What he said^^^
    In Maryland, where the arrest took place, it's called PBJ (probation before judgement).

    Just an update. Got my ltcf. In and out in 5 min.

    Local attorneys here in Allegheny were not entirely helpful enough to retain. Most never returned my calls or told me to call them when/if i am denied or charged with something...

    Prince Law and Gunlawyer were great and were my next best options.

    However, i decided to contact the Sheriff directly and he gave me some very good advice etc. Allegheny County FTW.


    Thank you everyone!
