Award Supports Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic

Award Supports Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic

Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson announced the Yolo Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee has awarded $19,495 from the Gaming Special Distribution Fund to support the Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic. 

California law allows rehabilitated offenders to petition the court to expunge their past convictions, reduce their felony convictions to misdemeanors, earn early termination of probation, or seal their juvenile or arrest records.  The goal of the Record Mitigation Clinic is to assist rehabilitated offenders with applications to the court for post-conviction legal remedies that serve to clear up their criminal records.  The Gaming Special Distribution Funds will allow the clinic to conduct outreach and perform legal services specifically for ex-offenders who were arrested related to tribal casino operations.
