San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan announced that her office is hosting a free Criminal Record Relief Clinic for justice-involved youth to pursue post-conviction relief. The virtual event will provide information about various criminal record relief options including record expungements, reclassification of felonies to misdemeanors, early termination of probation, and relief under Prop. 47 and Prop. 64. There will also be presentations from those with lived experiences, resources and individual follow-up and support.
“It’s important that we provide resources for people, especially youth, who are moving on from mistakes made in their past but have a criminal record that’s holding them back,” District Attorney Summer Stephan said. “This event empowers people who qualify to find a second chance, and ultimately helps build safer communities. Getting a second chance is a powerful opportunity that can change the course of someone’s life.”
The event will be held virtually on Friday, January 29, in partnership with the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office, the San Diego County Office of Education, California Community Colleges, San Diego Continuing Education and Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.
This is the second Criminal Record Relief Clinic organized by the DA’s Office since September 2019.
The Criminal Record Relief Clinic will be held via Zoom from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. on Friday, January 29. To register for the event, click here.
