Learn how to clear your criminal history and start anew at the Klamath County Library

Thursday, March 15th 6pm
Downtown Klamath County Library

The downtown Klamath County Library is hosting "Lay Person Legal," a series of law seminars for average folks navigating the legal system. Our latest presentation covers the process of clearing one’s criminal record on Thursday, March 15th at 6 pm.

Having a criminal record can make it hard to re-enter society, particularly where employment is concerned. Clearing your criminal history, a process called expungement, is a way for individuals to get distant past convictions off their “record.” Expungement isn’t available for all individuals or convictions, but it can help some wipe the proverbial slate clean and start fresh. Presenter Drew Hartnett will cover the hows and whys of getting your criminal record expunged, including how to avoid certain pitfalls what to expect throughout the process.

Hartnett is an attorney with Legal Aid Services of Oregon, practicing, among other areas, in the field of Landlord/Tenant law, focusing on protecting tenant rights and maintaining safe, habitable and available housing in the Klamath and Lake County communities.  Hartnett is licensed in Oregon and Kansas, and has lived in Oregon for 15 years.

This seminar series is a partnership between the downtown Klamath County Library, the Loyd De Lap Law Library, the Klamath County Bar Association and Legal Aid Services of Oregon, and will cover various legal topics of interest to the average person. Attendees will get a better appreciation of how the legal system works, particularly if they are attempting to navigate the courts without a lawyer.

Please note that while all our Lay Person Legal presenters are legal professionals, they cannot give legal advice on any specific case.

No registration is required. For more information, please call 541-882-8894.
