PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A former Harrisburg city councilman accused of stealing parking passes and food vouchers from a media logistics operation for the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia has been accepted into a program that would likely allow him to clear the charges from his record.

PennLive.com (https://bit.ly/2cR4Bmd ) reports that court records show that the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has approved 47-year-old Brad Koplinski for acceptance into a program that can give first-time offenders a chance to void criminal records and jail time.

Defense attorney Brian McQuillan says his client will likely learn the terms and conditions of his approval when he appears in court next month. He’s charged with burglary, trespassing, theft and receiving stolen property.

A spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office declined comment.
