Q: Will attending the ASI course in Allegheny County get the charge and fingerprints expunged or just dismissed. What is required to get the first retail theft charge and fingerprints (of a 17 year old) fully expunged? (Marshall Twp, PA)
A: If the District Justice ordered ASI for you, as long as you complete the program, which is a diversionary program, there will be no conviction. However, you will need to have an attorney to expunge the arrest records. As soon as District Justice dismisses the charges, call an attorney to start the expungement process.
