Crawford County Juvenile Probation provides supervision, care, and rehabilitation programs for children who have been found to have committed a delinquent act. These programs provide balanced attention to the protection of the community, accountability for offenses committed, and the development of competencies to enable children to become responsible and productive members of the community. Crawford County Juvenile Probation is a part of the Pennsylvania’s Juvenile Justice System Enhancement Strategy and utilizes several tools to assist youth in making behavior change, being accountable and improving skills. We strive to continuously improve the quality of our decisions, services and programs to assist youth. Juvenile Court jurisdiction can be provided for youth 10-21 years of age.
A juvenile record will remain with a juvenile offender after disposition. A record in Pennsylvania is not sealed and may result in collateral consequences. Certain cases are eligible for the record to be expunged prior to a child’s 18th birthday. These cases types include dismissals, withdrawal of the charges, consent decree disposition or any case not found to be adjudicated delinquent.
Adjudication of delinquency cases cannot move for expungement until the child reaches 18 years of age and 5 years have lapsed and the individual has remained crime free, including summary offenses.
The Juvenile Probation Department will assist in all cases for an automatic expungement for consent decrees disposition and dismissed or withdrawn cases. Assistance by the juvenile probation department can be requested in adjudicated cases when eligible.
