People who had a misdemeanor or felony conviction in El Dorado County at least one year ago may be eligible to have their record wiped clean and get a fresh start, something needed in today’s workforce.
A criminal conviction can also prevent a person from attending school field trips with their children and can present many other barriers.
There will be a clinic hosted by the District Attorney’s office on Monday, January 18, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 630 Main Street, Placerville, CA 95667.
If you know someone who was convicted of misdemeanors or felonies in El Dorado County over one year ago that resulted in jail time, alternative sentencing, or probation, they may be eligible to file a petition for an expungement.
For more information on eligibility, please check the Public Defender’s website www.edcgov.us/Public-Defender/ or pick up their Clean Slate Clinic Brochure at all courthouse locations, or at their office at 630 Main Street, Placerville, CA.
