The City of Southfield and Southfield Alumnae Chapter (SAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. in partnership with Lakeshore Legal Aid (LLA), Southfield Police, Wolverine Bar Association, and D. Augustus Straker Bar Association will host an Expungement Clinic & Resource Fair on Saturday, April 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The fair will provide the opportunity for individuals seeking to clear eligible criminal convictions from their records as well as additional community resources, skillset information, and other assistance. To receive assistance, individuals must register in advance by Thursday, March 23 at Eligible applicants will be contacted with an appointment time and location.

Expungements are for State of Michigan convictions only, including up to three felonies, two convictions for assaultive crimes, one drinking and driving offense, and unlimited misdemeanors. No capital offenses and most criminal sexual conduct convictions cannot be expunged.

“Everyone deserves an opportunity for a fresh start at a new life,” commented Oakland County 46th District Court Chief Judge Shelia Johnson. “This Expungement Fair (to clear criminal records of convictions) is vitally important for all those who may have made some bad decisions in their past, but are committed to working on a bright future!”
