Juvenile records are expungeable. There is no automatic expungement or sealing of the records in Pennsylvania when the person turns 18. Therefore, a juvenile expungement is a good idea to ensure what happened during your youth stays private.
Understand that judges have more discretion in juvenile expungements than in adult expungements, so juvenile expungements can be difficult to win. Also, juvenile expungements in cases of a sexual nature are almost impossible to attain, though possible.
