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. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  2. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  3. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation." More reading here: http://www.guns.com/2015/03/18/kansas-house-panel-goes-all-in-on-constitutional-carry-measure/ Time to man up, Hoosiers. (And I do not mean that in a sexist way.)

  4. This is why it is important to consider Long term care insurance. For you and for your loved ones

  5. I am terrified to see Fracking going on not only in Indiana but in Knox county. Water is the most important resource we have any where. It will be the new gold, and we can't live without it and we can live without gold. How ignorant are people?
