Free Clinic to Seal Juvenile Records

Categories: Homepage, News, Other

Bay Area Legal Aid is offering a free legal clinic to seal juvenile records for eligible individuals on April 11, 2019, from 4:00pm-6:00pm at Opportunity Junction in Antioch. When you seal your juvenile records relating to an arrest or court case, the court deems the arrest or court case “never to have occurred.” This means that when you apply to most jobs or colleges, you may be able to say that you were never arrested and that you have no criminal history.

IF YOU:

  • were arrested before you turned 18,
  • are now 18 to 24 years old,
  • are off probation or parole, and
  • have not been convicted of a felony AFTER you turned 18

 

Then you might be able to seal your juvenile records. To find out if you are eligible and to schedule a free appointment at one of our clinics, call (510) 250-5281 TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT or please email Michael Santos at msantos@baylegal.org.

This clinic is a collaboration of Bay Area Legal Aid and the Contra Costa Public Defenders Office.
