The general assembly of Pennsylvania has responded to the new case of V.A.M. regarding an expungement of a case that was thrown-out due to DNA evidence. See HOUSE BILL No. 1925 Session of 2009. The general assembly is again thinking about expungements in PA, trying to changing the law where the prosecution has withdraw a conviction and asked it be vacated due to later discovered evidence, making expungement automatic, like a not guilty. Will this become the law...don't know.
