The Anderson County Bar Association and NAACP are hosting a free Expungement and Driver’s License Assistance Clinic in Clinton on Saturday.
An expungement is a court order removing an eligible criminal charge or conviction from a person’s record.
The expungement clinic is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, August 24, at the First Baptist Church at 225 North Main Street in Clinton.
There is a mandatory application to complete for expungements at the event, a press release said.
Applications can be found at the Anderson County general sessions courts in Clinton and Oak Ridge, at the district attorney general’s and public defender’s offices, and at the PSI Probation office, the press release said. Applications are also available at Biloski & Miller in Clinton and Mostoller, Stulberg, Whitfield & Allen in Oak Ridge. Space is limited to the first 35 qualified applicants. Applications were being accepted until August 14 at noon, but organizers said they will help walk-ins if time permits.
The clinic will also provide information about how to obtain a driver’s license after it has been suspended or revoked, the press release said. There is no application for assistance with a driver’s license.
“Make sure to bring a photo identification and any court documents for expungements and a SSN (Social Security number) and license number for license assistance,” the press release said.
The event is made possible by the Anderson County NAACP, Anderson County Sessions and Criminal Court, Anderson County Public Defender’s Office, Anderson County Bar Association, Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance, and First Baptist Church, the press release said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
