Rep. Wheatley to host ‘Pathway to Pardon’ event

Event designed to help eligible individuals, streamline pardons process

PITTSBURGH, March 29 – In an effort to help residents who want to obtain a pardon or expungement of a past criminal conviction, state Rep. Jake Wheatley will be hosting a virtual community event to help educate the public about the pardons process.

Wheatley, D-Allegheny, said the “Pathway to Pardon” virtual event will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 31 via his Facebook page (facebook.com/RepWheatley).

“Far too many Pennsylvanians are impacted by past convictions, preventing them from having the life they want – including a job and a home – even after they’ve paid their debt to society,” Wheatley said. “This event will help participants learn how to navigate the pardon process during COVID-19.”
