Seal and Expunge Your Criminal Record at the AARLCC
Submitted by Steve Vinik
BROWARD COUNTY, FL – Learn how to “Seal or Expunge Your Criminal Record” in a free workshop at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC) on Monday, Sept. 24, 2012 at 6 p.m.
Don’t let a mistake from your past affect your future possibilities.
Some criminal records can be sealed or expunged, enabling you to apply for a job, continued education or housing. Sealed records are closed to all but certain government officials; the general public will not have access to those files. Expunged records are legally “erased” if a person was not convicted of a crime.
The workshop topics will include:
· Am I eligible to start the process? (Call 1-855-238-7325 if you want to verify your eligibility prior to the workshop)
· How do I properly seal or expunge my arrest record?
· What is the difference in sealing or expunging a record?
