"Clean Your Jacket" expungement clinic on Saturday

A program looking to help people clear their criminal record will be held this weekend in Shreveport.

The "Clean Your Jacket" expungement clinic will be held at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Barton Drive Manor at 1625 Barton Drive.

"An expungement can help nonviolent offenders remove barriers associated with obtaining gainful employment, enrolling in school, and securing affordable housing," said Shreveport Attorney Felicia Hamilton. "Attendees will benefit from the Clean Your Jacket event because they have the opportunity to learn about the expungement process & meet one on one with an attorney to discuss their specific cases."

The event will offer free expungement legal assistance. Participants are asked to bring a copy of the minutes from their case, available at the clerk of court's office.

"In the past, some "Clean Your Jacket" attendees have left the event with completed forms ready to file at the courthouse," Hamilton added. 

Those under 25, living in Section 8 or public housing have a chance at getting a free expungement and other free legal representation through the Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program. 

For more information, visit Shreveport Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program's Facebook. Or call VOTE at (318) 828-0377.
