Pa. man wants charges expunged from record

YORK, Pa. (AP) — A man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the 7-year-old boy he and his wife adopted from Russia is asking a central Pennsylvania judge to expunge the murder and conspiracy charges of which he was acquitted that remain on his record.

The York Daily Record (http://bit.ly/1bEaVoU ) says Michael Craver’s attorney told a York County judge on Monday that her client has had a difficult time obtaining employment to pay more than $58,000 he owes in fines, court costs and fees.

With no opposition from the commonwealth, Judge Craig Trebilcock said he would sign a partial expungement order.

Authorities alleged that Nathaniel Craver, who died in August 2009, been abused and neglected. The Cravers said their son had fetal alcohol syndrome and a history of injuring himself.
