What is the name of your state? PA
I was unable to find an available restroom in Pittsburgh recently and could not hold it. I found the most concealed area I could outside. Unfortunately, an undercover officer followed me. I was not drunk, was not disorderly and was well behaved with the arresting officers. The officers even commented that I was well behaved and would get a lenient treatment by the judge. I received a disorderly conduct summary offense charge for public urination. I had an attorney plead my case with the judge. The paperwork was written up wrong as a misdemeanor and the wrong codes were marked and the attorney tried to have the charge dismissed. The judge indicated that in his jurisdiction all such cases were classified as disorderly conduct. The attorney then entered a guilty plea -- so I was found guilty of a disorderly conduct - summary offense for public urination.
Will this stay permanently on my record and will it show up on a full background check?
Is there a way to remove it by taking a class or some other step? -- like the ARD program is used for other offenses?
