Cleaning Your Criminal Record: Individualized Help

Friday, October 25, 2019:   10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Were you denied housing or employment based on a criminal record? An expungement is a way to break barriers for a brighter future. Certain misdemeanors can be changed to "expunged" on your record showing the case was effectively dismissed. The Los Angeles County Public Defender's Office provides free record-cleaning services. Attorneys and paralegals will help in filling out expungement forms and reducing nonviolent felonies to misdemeanors through Prop 47.

Free one-on-one assistance provided with:

  • Obtaining a criminal history report for cases in LA County
  • Filing a petition to expunge certain misdemeanors
  • Getting a nonviolent felony reduced to a misdemeanor under Prop 47
  • Getting some marijuana offenses cleared under Prop 64

Los Angeles County Public Defender's Office can expunge Los Angeles County criminal records only.
