The Center for Arkansas Legal Services will host a free criminal record sealing clinic on Friday, Feb. 21, with attorneys on-site for free civil legal consultations.
According to staff attorney Abigail Brenneman, those interested in attending the clinic must have a copy of their sentencing order and Arkansas Crime Information Center report.
"If someone wants to get their record sealed, the first thing they need to do is get on this. They need to either call ACIC or get on the website and print off the form authorization for review," she said.
Brenneman advised individuals to designate themselves to receive the document and then either fax the document or submit it in person to the address listed. She said sentencing orders can be found at the courthouse where the individual was sentenced.
In addition to the record sealing clinic, attorneys from the Center for Arkansas Legal Services will be available for free civil legal consultations which Brenneman noted can include legal advice pertaining to housing law, consumer law, family law, public benefits, and other matters like wills and end of life instructions.
The clinic will be held inside the Dublin Room of CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs, 300 Werner St., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Brenneman said they are accepting walk-ins, but appointments are preferred.
