Reading, January 18, 2017  Sen. Judy Schwank is hosting an informational seminar on pardons, expungements and the new Limited Access processes on Saturday, Jan. 28, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Muhlenberg Township municipal building at 210 George Street.

The program is a joint effort between Schwank and Lt. Governor Mike Stack, and is geared to help those whose criminal records are unfairly blocking work and other opportunities.

“More often than not, many with criminal records continue to serve penalties long after the courts are done with them,” Schwank said. “They are unable to move on with their lives. This can be a first step toward a more productive life.”

“We are trying to educate Pennsylvanians about pardons and similar processes and how they can be tools to help people repair their lives for past mistakes that they have made,” Stack said. “I am a strong believer in forgiveness and I support giving people second chances.”
