Expungements: Application to Absolution

Crime and punishment.  Rehabilitation and forgiveness.  In Kansas, expungement of a criminal or traffic record is easy and affordable.  During this 50-minute CLE, Judges Cheryl Rios and Maban Wright will discuss the expungement process from beginning to end, including removal from the drug registry for qualifying offenders.   Expungement is a fundamental service for experienced and novice criminal practitioners.  Indigent offenders can generally apply and litigate pro se so don’t wait for Clean Slate Day!  Join us May 25th, 2023, from noon to 1:00 p.m. for Expungement: Application to Absolution.
