The Legal Assisting program at American River College (ARC) invites the community to a series of expungement clinics designed to help residents of the Sacramento region clear or reduce their California criminal record. The clinics will be held on six different Saturdays in 2018-19. Volunteer attorneys from the Sacramento legal community including the Wiley Manual Bar Association, the Cruz Reynoso Bar Association and the Asian Bar Association of Sacramento will be present to answer questions and review applications.
“These clinics are a great opportunity for anyone who wants to make a fresh start and clear their record,” said ARC Legal Assisting Professor Asha Wilkerson, who is coordinating the clinics. “We encourage residents to take advantage of these clinics and take a step forward with their future.”
The clinics are open to the general public as well as ARC students, faculty, and staff. The clinics will only serve individuals with criminal convictions obtained in California. The clinic will not address convictions from other states, the military or the federal government.
Each clinic will be held in Portable 609A on the main ARC campus from 9:00am – 1:00pm. Clinic dates are:
· November 10, 2018
· December 8, 2018
· February 9, 2019
· March 9, 2019
· April 13, 2019
· May 11, 2019
Attendees will need to bring a copy of their California rap sheet. It takes about two weeks to request a rap sheet. The clinics are free but attendees will need to purchase a $2 daily campus parking permit.
ARC’s main campus is located at 4700 College Oak Drive in Sacramento. For more information on the clinics, please visit http://www.arc.losrios.edu/legal-clinic
