Attorneys will present information and answer questions about Indiana’s new expungement law at a forum Saturday in Gary.

The Indiana Criminal Conviction Expungement Forum will include presentations on House Enrolled Act 1482, which allows arrest and conviction records to be sealed or expunged in many more cases than previously permitted. The law took effect July 1.

The forum will be at 2 p.m. at Indiana University Northwest in Bergland Auditorium of the Savannah Center, 3400 Broadway, Gary.

Attendees interested in information about possible expungement are requested to bring the following, if possible:

  •     Their most recent court docket sheet, available from the clerk of courts’ office in the county where the case was handled;
  •     Their complete criminal history, available online at www.in.gov/isp under the “Limited Criminal History” tab; and
  •     Their most recent appellate court documents if a case was appealed to a higher court.


The forum is sponsored by the Gary Commission on the Social Status of Black Males in partnership with the James Kimbrough Bar Association; the Brother 2 Brother student organization at IU Northwest; Nation of Islam; Hillcrest Manor Selfology Institute; and Progressive Community Church.

For more information, contact the Gary Commission on the Social Status of Black Males at 219-880-2284 or email gcssbm@yahoo.com.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
