Prof. McCants Lewis discusses Pa. 'Clean Slate' bill

The Post-Gazette interviewed Prof. Tracey McCants Lewis about the Pennsylvania "Clean Slate" bill, which seeks to seal nonviolent misdemeanor convictions after 10 with no other convictions.

The action would happen automatically, without an individual needing to file a petition with the court.

"A Clean Slate law would help, without having to go through a legal process again," said McCants Lewis, associate clinical professor and pro bono program coordinator at Duquesne University School of Law.
