UT Expunction Clinic Accepting New Applications
The UT Law School Expunction Project's Spring Intake Sessions have been announced. The Expunction Project evaluates criminal records to determine if a person is eligible to expunge (destroy) or seal (limit access to) records of an arrest, and is administered by the Mithoff Pro Bono Program at the University of Texas School of Law. Records that can be expunged are: Arrests for crimes that were never charged, criminal charges that were dismissed, and certain misdemeanor offenses committed as a juvenile or minor (Class C tickets). Felonies cannot be expunged.
When: Monday, February 13th 6:00pm - 8:00pm
When: Tuesday, February 21st 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Where: The Travis County Law Library - 314 W. 11th Street
Reminders: Applicants must submit a copy of their DPS criminal history report before their intake session and register ahead of time.
Applicants may obtain the criminal history report in Austin at The Department of Public Safety 108 Denson Drive ($25 card or money order). They will be fingerprinted and the report will be mailed, usually within 7-10 days.
Applicants may also bring court records to assist in determining eligibility for assistance.
