The Topeka Bar Association will host a Clean Slate project in September 2022. The Clean Slate project is a pro bono service project designed to offer individuals the opportunity to have certain qualifying criminal arrests, convictions and diversions expunged through a simplified process. This may assist in removing barriers which prevented employment and housing opportunities. Only adult arrests, convictions and diversions occurring in Shawnee County qualify for this project. Federal and municipal court cases cannot be addressed at this project. The Clean Slate project is possible through the combined efforts of members of the Topeka Bar Association, Third Judicial District Court, office of Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay, Third Judicial District Public Defender Office, Kansas Legal Services, Washburn Law School and Butler and Associates. The event to submit expungement petitions to the Court will be held on Friday September 15, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. at the Agriculture Hall building located at the Stormont Vail Events Center. Entry is at 17th and S.W. Exoduster Dr. Individuals are encouraged to obtain and fill out the necessary forms prior to arriving. The forms can be downloaded from the Shawnee County District Attorney’s web site at http://www.snco.us/da/expungements.asp. Volunteers will be available to provide limited assistance in completing the expungement application forms. The cost for filing an expungement is $195 per case. Poverty and hardship affidavits will be available for those individuals who qualify and cannot pay the required filing fee and surcharge. Please bring legal photo identification for the affidavit of undue hardship. Cash payment will not be accepted. Payment may be made by money order or check. Individuals who filed an expungement petition that is not objected to by the Shawnee County District Attorney, will still need to attend a hearing and sign the necessary expungement order.
