There are only a few ways to have something expunged in PA. Obviously if your husband was placed on ARD for one of the cases and completed everything he would be able to get that expunged. Unfortunately if he pled guilty or was found guilty he would have a conviction and this much harder to have it expunged. I fact, in PA he would have to be 70 years old or dead to have it expunged. He could also try and have it expunged by pardon through the governors office as well. This is something he will want to have reviewed by an experienced DUI attorney and I would strongly suggest talking with one.
You should have an experienced criminal defense attorney review your record to determine which cases if any can be expunged. Convictions and pleas cannot be expunged.
I agree with the responses you have received thus far and write separately to say that your son's counsel should be the sole source of information and advice about his situation. If your son is not satisfied with the representation, he is certainly allowed to seek a new attorney.
Certain DUI dispositions, such as ARD, are likely expungeable. Others are not. You should meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can advise you on which charges can be expunged. Please feel free to contact me if you should have any further questions.
