About Abington, PA
Abington is the second most highly populated township in Montgomery County, and is located just north of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Abington is also the second most densely populated area of Montgomery County, and, incorporated in 1704, is one of the oldest communities in the area. The Abington area is unofficially divided into 15 communities, and although these designations are unofficial, they are important because the postal service uses those community designations to deliver mail, rather than the “Abington” address. Abington has a population of approximately 55,310 as of the last census in 2010, and approximately 56 percent of the households in the area consist of married couples.
Abington has a rich history, and a small battle even took place in the area during the Revolutionary War. Both Abington Senior High School and Fox Chase Farm are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Both arrests and convictions can appear on your permanent criminal record, which can be accessed by potential employers and landlords, among others. If conviction was for a summary arrest, and five years have passed without subsequent arrest or conviction, a criminal defense lawyer can petition to have your record expunged if all conditions to your conviction and punishment have been satisfied. However, certain sex crimes, such as rape and sexual assault, and other violent crimes may not be expunged if the victim was underage when the crime occurred.
Pennsylvania law provides different standards for juveniles who were convicted of crimes and wish to have their records expunged. Expungement may be possible if (1) six months have passed since you completed your punishment, and you have not been arrested again, (2) six months have passed since you completed a diversionary program and no other conviction or adjudications are pending, (3) you have reached age 18, and six months have passed since you satisfied the terms and conditions of a summary conviction, you have not been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, or adjudicated delinquent, and you have no further pending charges for any felony, misdemeanor or delinquency. The District Attorney also must generally agree to the expungement.
